Families Moving Forward

Healing Children from Sexual Abuse

Families Moving Forward is a group therapy program designed for children who have been sexually abused and their non-offending parents. The group uses a whole family approach to healing.

Our goal is to strengthen: the children who have experienced sexual abuse, so they can grow and develop to their full potential; and their families, so they can move forward and create a strong, safe and solid environment for their children.

Families Moving Forward combines therapy, education and support to parents so that they can assist their children to heal and protect them from future abuse, along with a child-centered social environment where abused children can build resilience through activities with caring, competent adults.
