Surrendering the Secret is a course designed to bring healing to women who have had an abortion in their past. Abortion is not a secret anymore; it is freely discussed in our society. Despite the openness, many women have pain and experiences that they don’t feel comfortable telling anyone. The mission is to provide a supportive and confidential environment that facilitates healing and restoration, bringing a sense of hope and purpose for the future.
POST ABORTION SYNDROME…ARE YOU AT RISK?
Post Abortion Syndrome (PAS) has been proposed as a specific diagnosis for women who experience a specific related set of emotional problems. PAS is proposed as a subset of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) when PTSD is the result of an abortion. Many women who have emotional problems after an abortion fit within the diagnosis of PTSD.
THE SYMPTOMS – If you suspect you suffer from PAS or are simply struggling with your feelings about the abortion- don’t try to handle it alone. While talking to a friend or relative may be helpful, women experiencing PAS may need counseling and/or a support group in order to work through their feelings about the abortion and the trauma surrounding it. These services are available to anyone struggling with a past abortion, even if there are no symptoms of PAS.
