LAAF’s project on therapy for men who have been abused
In Nigeria, a young woman who survived sexual abuse, found the strength to teach other victims how to overcome this ordeal. Her foundation Life after Abuse strives for a better social awareness of sexual violence and the post-traumatic convalescence of victims. Halima Layeni focused her attention on marginalized adolescents to whom she offered listening sessions and therapy. She then realized that young men who were victims of abuse needed more adapted therapy. Our correspondent in Abuja, Ugo Uyanna followed her to understand her approach.
