Help is Hard to Find for Child Sex Abuse Victims in India

That's not very good therapy," said Gupta.

But counselling is vital, Gupta said, especially for learning how to cope in a society where families are closely-knit and where it is difficult to avoid a former abuser after the abuse has stopped.

But with counselling, she said, life has become easier.

"I used to look at him like I'll kill him, and now I look at him with pity or forgiveness," she said.
