Path of Wellness, Empowerment & Recovery

Healing from Technology-Assisted Child Sexual Abuse (TACSA)

MCF is dedicated to supporting victims of TACSA on their recovery journey, to go on to live safe and fulfilling lives. But with an evident lack of interventions that focus of the specific impacts associated with TACSA, we highlighted the vital need for a resource to be created to help support children and young people.

With the support of Help For Children, we have created a free resource that addresses some of the recovery needs of a child harmed by TACSA that is accessible, age relevant, trauma focused, and ultimately one that does no further harm to the child.

POWER has been produced by professionals who have years of experience working with trauma and in collaboration with those with lived experience. It will enable practitioners who work directly with children and young people to focus on the child’s individual recovery needs.  

This is an evolving resource which will be routinely updated to accommodate for the ever-changing online landscape. To keep up to date with the latest updates please subscribe to the POWER mailing list below.
