Finally, it is widely known and understood that millions of children and adolescents have been sexually abused by:
- Priests, rabbis, and clergy-members
- Healthcare workers
- School employees
- Private boarding schools
- Athletic coaches and trainers
- Youth groups
- Foster care agencies
- Adolescent group homes
- Juvenile diversion programs
- Numerous others in positions of power and trust
It is well documented that sexual abuse is often repressed and can go for far too long before a survivor is emotionally capable of coming forward with their story, ESPECIALLY when the victim involved is a child. Often survivors feel ashamed, powerless, humiliated, embarrassed, and blame themselves, even though they were the victims of horrible acts of abuse. This is especially true because most were children at the time of the abuse. Thanks to the Child Victims Act (CVA), people who have been sexually abused as children whose claims had previously been barred by the statute of limitations now have a one year window (August 14, 2019, to January 14th, 2021) in which to bring their claim.
