What are the effects of sexual abuse?
There are many serious effects after suffering sexual abuse. Sexual trauma can have physical, emotion, and physical effects on survivors. These effects aren’t easy to deal with and often require help from experts on how to deal with them. Depression, flashbacks, issues with intimacy, and post-traumatic stress disorder are only a few examples of the types of effects that survivors may have to face. The effects of traumatic events manifest differently from survivor to survivor. The one common denominator is that everyone needs help to work through these resulting phenomena.

What does it mean to be trauma-informed?

Traumatic experiences impact every area of functioning, including physical, mental, behavioral, and social processes. Trauma-informed care means treating a whole person, taking into account past trauma and the resulting coping mechanisms when attempting to understand and interact with clients who’ve been through traumas. Cohen & Malad, LLP is proud that each member of its sexual abuse litigation team has been trained in trauma-informed care and will treat our clients and their families with understanding, respect, and dignity at all times.
