Adult Victims of Childhood Sexual Abuse: Part Two

Here is part two of introducing the language of adult victims of childhood sexual abuse.  It is vital for professionals to receive language specific training, not only to spot the potential abuse, but to discern false allegations from truthful.  Perseveration of past abuse with present allegations can present unique challenges. 

The advanced training for Sex Crimes Units, psychologists, counselors, child protective and adult protective caseworkers, nurses, etc, addresses this specifically.  Learning to detect deception is the first step.

I was thinking about the phrase" let out my dog." Why the need to tell us this? Once we note the opening of the door in relation to possible childhood sexual abuse, it may also be the case that letting out the dog was a psychological means of escape, or yearning to escape. The dog was shut in and she let the dog out.I think it's significant that we have a linguistic signal in relation to possible childhood sexual abuse in the same sentence as letting out a her dog, a means of escape or removing herself from area (distance) of the door. Furthermore, she could have said, "to let my dog out," but in her mind, it was more important to place the "let out" before the mentioning of the dog in the order of speaking.

She opened the door to let out the dog, she also opened the door when hearing a knock.....both can't be happening at the same time i think?
