Helping Victims of Abuse by Clergy or Therapists
People naturally put their trust in members of the clergy, therapists, teachers and other professionals. But many who seek counsel from these individuals are already in a vulnerable emotional or psychological position. Though it happens rarely, some of these counselors can take advantage of those who put their trust in them. The victims of physical or emotional abuse can suffer the effects for years, even for a lifetime.

Help for Child and Adult Survivors of Abuse
Child survivors of abuse and molestation need to know that they can take legal action years after the abuse. The Washington statute of limitations for claims involving childhood sexual abuse states that a suit must be filed is the latest of the following:
- Within three years of the act alleged to have caused the injury or condition
- Within three years of the time the victim discovered or reasonably should have discovered that the injury or condition was caused by the act
- Within three years of the time the victim discovered that the act caused the injury for which the claim is brought
