The SAT program was established in 1979 with the recognition that sexual abuse is a serious problem which requires the sensitive coordination of many different agencies. Professionals on the SAT team attend regular workshops and seminars on the issues of child sexual abuse to ensure treatment is both current and well-informed.
Sexual abuse, whether inter-familial or extra-familial, can have a significant impact on the family system. The stress that ensues as a result of the assault often effects the family’s ability to cope with even normative, daily stressors. In addition to treating the victim with the skills needed to resolve trauma symptoms, the SAT team also supports the family in managing stress and maintaining stability.
