An ABC of CSA - set of illustrated alphabet cards
An ABC of CSA is a creative resource to support better conversations about child sex abuse. The cards have been developed by our community for our community, with over 40 survivors involved through a series of workshops with Viv Gordon, and have been illustrated by Imogen Harvey-Lewis.
Each card can be seen in different ways. They are intended to start conversations, not to tell anyone how to think or feel. They are designed to spend time with, to come back to more than once, to discover different details each time… Some may be hard to look at or provoke strong reactions. Others may feel like a warm hug from one survivor to another.
The words and images offer a snapshot of our experiences, but not every card will be meaningful for every CSA survivor. Our community is devastatingly huge. There are an estimated 11 million adult survivors of child sexual abuse in the UK. It would be impossible to represent each unique, complex journey in 26 cards.
The cards sing with the deep wisdom and creativity of survivors. We will not be silenced. We hope they offer insight and healing. Most importantly, we hope they help us find ways to talk about our experiences as survivors of child sexual abuse.
Alongside the 26 alphabet cards each pack contains a guide to using the cards and 5 cards with separate alphabets from each CSA survivor based group we worked with.
The price above is a not for profit price and includes post/packaging to UK addresses and processing costs. The cards will be posted in a plain unbranded envelope. For international shipping please email email@example.com
