Through Child's Eyes is a video about the shame and guilt the victims of sexual trauma and sexual abuse very often experience. Why do they feel shame and guilt when they did nothing wrong? The answer lies in the unique child's eye view of the world. Victims can learn that they are not to blame, and that there is hope, that they can get better.

Sexual Trauma produces a potentially large number of symptoms in its victims. The following symptoms are found in patients who have come to seek treatment from professionals in hospitals, clinics, private practices or other treatment programs. Depression is the most common, claiming 97% of all sexual trauma victims. 60% will experience sexual dysfunction, 49% anxiety and panic, 48% suicide or suicide attempts, 48% substance abuse, 46% psychoses, 32% dissociative disorders (including multiple personality disorder), 29% borderline personality disorder, 24% self-mutilation (including cutting), 24% sexual identity disorder, and 12% antisocial personality disorder. Most victims will experience more than one symptom, sometimes several.

However, all of these symptoms can be dealt with in a proper therapeutic setting. Victims need to realize that they are not alone, there is hope, they can get better.
