The WONSA clinic
The clinic is the basis for all of our work, for three reasons:
- Achieving a world without sexual abuse is only possible through healing of existing sufferers.
- The practical experience we achieve at the clinic, combined with scientific studies at and outside the clinic creates a unique environment for primary prevention (efforts to reduce the risk for a person to ever be subjected to sexual abuse).
- Sexual abuse increases the chance of being sexually abused, a process known as revictimization. Treatment is one of the most effective measures for secondary prevention (preventing a sexual abuse victim from being sexually abused again).
