YWCA Metropolitan Chicago Serves Survivors of Sexual Abuse

For more than 30 years, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago has been a leading advocate on issues of violence against women and children. YWCA's Sexual Assault Support Services program empowers suvivors of sexual abuse through the use of individual and group counseling and therapy, medical and legal advocacy, along with providing outreach and education to the community. Clinicians use many approaches to providing for and reaching clients, especially the use of books that display personal accounts of sexual assault. Additionally, YWCA clinicians consistently refer to clinical books and resources to not only expand their understanding of the impact of sexual abuse, but also to learn different approaches to providing sound clinical services to survivors.
