Yes. It's called 'experiential therapy'. Check out treatment centers near you where this is offered. Or you can try EMDR therapy, too.

There could be any number of reasons. Seek the help of a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. You regular family practitioner ought to be able to give you a name or two. I'm not sure I would go looking on the web for help unless I checked carefully the credentials od any practitioner.

Don't listen to armchair "specialists" that will reply.

You might find the proper application of a baseball bat about the head and shoulders of the abuser to be quite helpful.

I am in trauma recovery. My recent traumas left me with disabling PTSD, and in the process of recovery I have discovered much about my past. Once I started to listen to myself, everything about my life made a lot more sense, and I now have hope like I've never had before. That hope stems from the gift of knowing that all of my struggles in life are consequences of things that have happened TO me, and I can heal from those events and have a much happier and healthier future.
I don't know your life, but this is what I have learned from my experience: no one is born to suffer. Listen to yourself. You are the only thinker in your mind, and your pain is warranted; you can take your pain and your memories/feelings seriously, and you can heal. Symptoms are adaptive and are worth respect - they exist for a reason. Often, though, symptoms persist beyond the phase in life during which we need them to survive, and they will go away once our pain is healed.
I recommend reading up on dissociation and the psychology of trauma; sexual abuse, books by Alice Miller and Judith Herman, etc. Browse the internet and see where it takes you. Often just doing a lot of reading offers clues for our past because something reminds us of what mattered. Also, writing in my journal has been very helpful for me. Once I write something down, I want to write more, and I often discover a lot about myself that way.

Yes, there is a way. It's called therapy. Find your local community mental health center, where they offer counseling on a sliding fee scale. Your fee is based on your ability to pay.

Please do this. It matters.

Historically, "preachers" are as likely to abuse as to help. You get help from professionals who have received real, science-based training.

I agree that therapy is also important. Each psychologist/therapist/counselor/etc. has a unique background, and theories vary greatly. Therapy should provide you with an environment in which you feel free and safe to share with someone who takes you and your experience seriously, and who empowers you with expertise but does not oblige you to follow any specific theory-based advice. Theory can be helpful, but if therapy becomes just another way you are prevented from trusting YOU, it will be detrimental.

Where was Jesus while this happened? You can't rely on that guy, you gotta rely on yourself, and the help of a tangable therapist.

True story:
A kid in canada got back at his abuser after running into him at a store yrs later. He beat the crap out of him, and ran off. A "good samaritan" told the police where the young aggressor ran to, they arrested the poor kid.

While the kid was in prison, the molester won a substancial amount in lottery.

The kid thought, well isn't that a kick in the head? So, upon his release, he robs the molester, and dealt him another knuckle sandwich or two...

Last I heard, he was doing major prison time....

Moral of the story? There isn't one. Just grab a bat, and don't do it in front of anyone....Quietly...

"Is there a way to release anger you have from being molested?"

-As weird as it may sound, you can find redemption, peace, understanding and release all your anger through entertainment (mostly the arts) and/or professional help of course. Choosing professional help may be a bit harder if your a shy person that doesnt express his feelings very often, which is why you can rely on someone you trust, like a close friend for example. The "Entertainment" way will require to look deepdown yourself to find something you like to do, or listen to.....You may have to experience new things as well. It could be a bit more tricky depending on the type of person you are but once you found it....you'll know.....accept the past, and free your mind........

Right, a priest. That is exactly who should they be talking to about inappropriate touching. They have a great track record in that field.

Yes, definitely, with meridian energy techniques like TFT (Thought Field Therapy), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and FasterEFT. They work great with all kinds of traumatic memories. I use FasterEFT and it works fast and deep. EFT is wonderful too. There are a lot of free resources on the web for EFT and FasterEFT. Robert Smith, the guy who developed FasterEFT has over 500 YouTube videos that you can work along with. I think he recommends that a person new to the technique start with his video #69. Just do a YouTube search for "FasterEFT 69".

These techniques are based on working with emotions while touching or tapping on acupuncture meridian points - no needles. Much, much (!) faster and more effective than any other modality you may try. Looks hokey and feels hokey too at first, but it works!!! Also, extremely easy to learn and you don't even have to believe it will work. As long as you follow the instructions and go through the motions, it works.

Contrary to popular belief therapy doesn't help everyone. Therapy makes me go into incredible rages. Not talking about it, works for me.

While I absolutely tend to agree, i have to admit, it only works for a while. Then the rage is tenfold.
