Little Warriors is a national, charitable organization based in Canada, committed to the awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse. The Be Brave Ranch –a program delivered by Little Warriors, is a best practices facility, pulling together the most tested and true modalities of therapy –play therapy, yoga therapy, equine therapy, music therapy, art therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, EMDR therapy, and put them all together in one intensive environment. The program works with youth 8 -12 years old.
Recently a young local boy had the opportunity to attend the Be Brave Ranch for a one month stay. This 8 year old will be returning for 2 more weeks of therapy in the summer and he is very excited to return. Both he and his mom would love to give back to the Be Brave Ranch that depends solely on charitable donations.
“The Ranch came at a good time. Now my son is happy and wanting to play with his siblings and read books. He’s not angry, he hasn’t had any violent outbursts. There’s still issues we need to work on but the Ranch has been helpful with that too. There are a lot more good days now.” ~ Mother of 8 year old Sault Ste. Marie boy
1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys experience an unwanted sexual act.
95% of child sexual abuse victims know their perpetrator.
The long-term consequences of childhood sexual experiences with adults have been demonstrated to include, anxiety, deliberate self-harm, depression, difficulties in interpersonal relationships, eating disorders, poor self-esteem, prostitution, and sexual dysfunction.
In 2005, the rate of sexual assault against children and youth was over five times higher than for adults (206 children and youth victims compared to 39 adult victims for every 100,000 people.)
