Secondary Survivors Support Group

I’ve found out that there is a Secondary Survivors Support Group in my area. There are support groups for the Primary survivors as well but it seems like its for adult survivors. I’m gonna go to this meeting and hopefully they will know if or where I can find a group for teen survivors for my daughter to attend.
She participated in group therapy with about four girls her age at the end of her year long one on one councelling. She really loved the group therapy because she met and bonded with a few girls who knew exactly what it feels like to be a CSA survivor. Truth is, its great to have support of any kind but its different when you have the benefit of support from people who’ve suffered the same trauma as you. They have experienced the same roller coaster of complex emotions and have thought the same thoughts that are unique to your shared traumatic experiences.
This is what I’ve been searching for. Others out there like me who have lived through the same unfortunate kind of trauma that I can connect with and maybe even start to find some healing.
Hopefully the group that meets weekly in my area is the first step in the right direction towards finding some peace, the light at the end of the tunnel that I’ve been searching for so long for.

I submitted my request to join the Parents helping Parents forum.

I’m the mother of 3 children. a son who’s 16, a daughter who’s 13, and another daughter who’s 7. april 1st/2nd 2010 in the middle of the night my middle child called my mother, panicking, she revealed she’d been being sexually abused by her stepfather, my husband and father of my youngest child. I’ve been alone in my feelings of overwhelming misery for the past year, until i came across this website. We see therapists, psychologists and counselors. I even started to blog anonymously so that I had a safe place to vent, the average fb friend is just not that dedicated to hearing about anyones turmoil. Some can be downright rude. I took refuge on an anonymous blog site. when i came across your website the other day i posted this:
Omg, if only I had known of this websites existence a year ago, six months ago, yesterday. My God. I don’t feel completely alone in my tortured feelings and emotions. One of the first threads I came across had a response that was written on the page as though it was my own personal dialogue downloaded directly from my brain and displayed in in black and white, my language, a font that my browser can understand. This is the post I read from someones brain that has heard my thought.
I would desperately like to join your group.
Sincerely,
Holly
