Building a SafePath: From Confusion to Clarity has been an evolution over many years of working with child victims of sexual abuse and their parents and loved ones. At SafePath, we believe that a parent’s support is vital to a child’s recovery from trauma of sexual abuse. More than anything, children need the love and support of those who have the greatest influence and impact in their lives. It is with this in mind that Building a SafePath was written.
