Sadiyya Haffejee (University of the North West, South Africa)
Research suggests that while child sexual abuse may result in a number of negative behavioural and psychological consequences for survivors, the impact is variable; with some survivors able to do well.
Methods: Resilience research on CSA has largely employed quantitative methods of data collection and has focused primarily on resilience processes in adult survivors of sexual violence. Participatory methods gives voice to adolescent girls experiences of child sexual abuse. Using participatory diagramming, group and individual interviews and digital stories, this study explores how 8 Black South African adolescent girls that reside in child and youth care facilities are able to do well in spite of sexual abuse. The study explores the multiple risks present in the lives of these girls and focuses on the protective processes that enable them to do well.
Findings: Findings will describe the complex interplay of both intrapersonal resources as well as external enabling resources that facilitate resilience processes in this group.   

Abstract #32
Title: Processes of resilience: the history of women overcoming sexual exploitation in Brazil - A documentary
Renata Maria Coimbra (São Paulo State University, Brazil)
Introduction:  The aim of this work is to present a short version of a documentary about the lives of women,  who have experienced situations of sexual exploitation during their early adolescence, in Brazil. The women reveals the protective factors present in their lives trajectories, leading them to resilience processes.
Methods: During the years of 1999-2000, they took part of PhD research and had their experiences audio recorded in cassette tapes; they talked about their lives on the streets, involvement with drugs, commercial sex and dreams.  In 2015, the PhD researcher / diretor of the documentary  found the tapes and decided to look for these women, in order to meet them again and to know what happened to them. So, the diretor started a one year search and found all the women, protagonists of the documentary,  that focus on individual testimonies, able to challenge our own prejudices.
Findings:  “Unheard voices” is a documentary for a cause. It gives a realistic picture of the experiences of adolescents who were left behind, and despite this, were capable of  overcome adversities. Their voices will finally be heard and help to reflect on effectiveness of social policies  aiming to combat sexual exploitation.
