Acknowledging and facing child sexual abuse can be very difficult and stressful for caregivers. An initial response of shock, disbelief, and inappropriate unsupportive responses is common. For Advocacy professionals, working with nonbelieving, initially unsupportive caregivers brings unique challenges. It is of paramount importance that CAC’s support them and help them shift their perspective to promote healing and safety in their family. This session describes effective strategies to aid these caregivers and empower them to be protective, believing, and supportive with a group specifically designed for them. Through education, support, and soft confrontation, many nonbelieving caregivers can make this shift.
