The Families Affected by Sexual Assault [FASA] program has been working with families in Winnipeg for over 30 years. We believe that parents or guardians are the best resources for their children. In our collaborative work with families, we provide trauma-informed, developmentally appropriate therapy to help children and their families recover.
- A child’s disclosure breaks the silence and begins the recovery process
- When faced with the issues of sexual assault, parents often feel helpless
- The staff of the FASA program is here to help you and your family.
What you need to know:
- Sexual assault affects all family members
- Parents play an active and essential role in therapy
- Children who have support and understanding will suffer fewer ill effects
- Children can and do recover
If this has happened to you it is very important that you tell an adult that you trust to help you. If this has happened to someone you know it is also important to tell an adult that you trust. Adults can, will, and do believe, they can help.
