Port Moody Sexual Abuse Lawyers

The impact of sexual abuse can be devastating and long-lasting. Survivors may experience feelings of shame, guilt, and anger. They may struggle with depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as other mental health disorders.

Survivors of sexual abuse are also more likely than non-victims to develop alcoholism or substance use disorders. In an attempt to cope with their trauma, many survivors of sexual abuse engage in various modes of self-destructive behaviours. They are 13 times more likely to develop alcoholism and 26 times more likely to develop substance addictions than non-victims.

Sexual abuse is often perpetrated by people in positions of trust, authority, or dependency. Indeed, sexual predators might purposefully seek out employment or volunteer opportunities in settings that put them in closer proximity to potential targets. There, they can gain the trust of children, adolescents, or vulnerable people in their care in order to engage in sexual exploitation. They can also exert their authority to bully, threaten, or otherwise manipulate their targets into engaging in non-consensual sexual activities.

In some cases, the organization that employees or supervises known sexual abusers may choose to prioritize their institution’s reputation over the safety of the people it serves. If they willingly turn a blind eye to abuses taking place within their organization and fail to take action against the perpetrators of this crime, they could place even more targets in harm’s way.
