    Therapy is a must! But she have to be the one who is willing to seek for help in order to move on.

    In my case, no one in my family knew (and still doesn't). The best thing I did for myself was moved hundreds of miles away and kept myself occupied....

    It's best for her to keep her distance from her family. As a friend, you and anyone else in your circle should keep her mind off of them and provide her with the support and attention she needs. Don't bring up the subject unless she does. As it can cause some PSTD...

    Developing her own life (excluding her family) to the fullest may be a way to help her cope.  If she is focused on creating her own family, or a new career choice, or traveling, or whatever it may be that she chooses to do, it could help her see that her life can be fulfilled and happy in the present, regardless of her past.  I too have some pretty horrible scars from the past, but I have made sure to focus on creating happiness for myself in the present.. for me it makes the sting of the past hurt a little less.

    The book "Unpacking Forgiveness" by Chris Brauns has been tremendously helpful to many people who have suffered abuse.
