Sexual Abuse Treatment for Teen Boys

Therapy for Teen Boys with Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse is profoundly emotionally damaging due to its deeply personal and invasive nature, affecting victims on multiple levels—physically, psychologically, emotionally, and often socially.

The deep emotional impact is complex and therapy is often necessary to help victims process their trauma and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Some of the most common types of therapies for sexual abuse survivors include:

      Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

      Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

      Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

      Psychodynamic Therapy

      Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)

      Group Therapy

      Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy

      Experiential Learning

Understanding How Sexual Abuse Impacts Teen Behavior

According to the National Institute for Health, 82% of men who have reported a sexual assault also meet the criteria for at least one mental health disorder. Sexual abuse can lead to a range of life-controlling problems like serious mental health conditions, substance abuse, addictions, or behavioral problems.

In teens, sexual abuse can look like:

      Increased risk of mental health disorders

      Emotional Instability (Frequent Anger Outbursts)

      Aggressive Behavior

      Substance Abuse and Addiction

      Questioning Self Identity

      Avoidance or Overindulgence of Sexual Behavior

      Increased Risk of Suicidal Thoughts or Behaviors

      Withdrawal or Social Isolation

      Video Game or Technology Addiction

If your family is struggling with difficult teenage behavior, there may be an underlying cause. It’s important to recognize when trauma may be showing up as aggression, depression, or maladaptive coping mechanisms.

If you suspect that sexual abuse may be behind your son’s struggles, therapy can help.

When is Residential Treatment Appropriate for Teens with Trauma from Sexual Abuse

There are many different types of therapies available for victims of sexual abuse. The level of care and type of therapy that is most appropriate depends on the individual. It’s a good idea to consult a mental health professional to help determine when or if placement in a residential treatment facility might benefit your teen.

Typically, families choose residential treatment programs when:

      Previous outpatient therapies have failed

      There is an immediate threat to personal safety

      The trauma is complex or the individual has co-occurring diagnoses

      The teen is experiencing substance abuse or addiction
