This was an excellent session and certainly made me think. I would have liked it to be a whole day as I felt the discussions were very helpful and I’d have liked longer to do this.
This is a difficult subject to talk about but the session was very sensitively presented and I felt comfortable using my own experiences in the group. Yvonne had said at the beginning that we only needed to share what we felt comfortable sharing and I shared because I felt very supported in the session. It was nice when people said what I had shared had been helpful for them
I had never thought of historical sexual abuse and how this might affect service user’s behaviour when they need personal care
