The local context in Hong Kong, poses a number of challenges in working with young women who have been sexually abused. This paper describes the author's efforts to develop helpful and hopeful ways of responding that privilege young women's local knowledge and skills in dealing with the effects of abuse. The use of externalising conversations, the journey metaphor, therapeutic documents and the development of groups are all discussed. So too is the need to address the acts of rejection and anger that are directed towards many young women by family members when they disclose their experiences of abuse.
