Very true, CSA survivors act out for very different reasons than people with sexual addiction. The treatment is very different also.By the way, I just have to say this. I’ve been hesitant to join a group that appeared to be all about addictions (sex, porn, etc) because I wanted to work thru the root of those issues and not get caught up in some behavior mod program - again.
However… after a good friend of mine has become deeply involved, I have found out that while addiction is a part of the program (especially on the support forums), the real heart of what they do is a lot of what we talk about here that is required for healing: addressing childhood and teenage wounds that drive many unwanted behaviors. HM doesn’t limit this to CSA wounds but it is certainly prevalent for a lot of men there. Many, many men have unresolved mother and father wounds from their youth.
I haven’t jumped in to HM yet. I feel like I’m still working thru a lot of trauma stuff, but getting involved is something I want and plan to do.
