In Session II we will explore some of the affects of exploitation. Sexual exploitation effects more than just the two people involved in the relationship.The goal of this section is to learn about effects on the victim and others who are affected by sexual exploitation.
At the end of this session you will be able to
—identify 3 groups that are affected by sexual exploitation,
—list at least 5 effects of exploitation
When an incident of sexual exploitation occurs its effects spread to many others. The ‘relationship’ may have gone on for a long time or a short time. It may have been discovered by someone else accidentally or the victim might have begun feeling there was something wrong and come forward.
Others that are affected by exploitation include:
- the spouse or significant other of both parties
- their friends & families,
- the congregation, and
- the wider church.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the effects.
