Sexual Assault

"Sexual violence represents the ultimate wielding of power and control. It constitutes a violation of a sacred place that is the intimate, soulful core of the self" (CALCASA, 2008, Support for Survivors Mini Book).

 

Victims of sexual violence often experience a number of common effects. These may include:

  • Flashbacks

  • Nightmares

  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep

  • Anger and rage

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Hypervigilence

  • Anxiety and panic

  • Self-blame, guilt, and shame

  • Emotional numbing

  • Physical symptoms and health problems
