Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month

April is National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month. As a trauma specialist, I work with many persons (men and women) who have been the victims of sexual assault in clearing that trauma in a painless way without retraumatizing them through the course of therapy using Rapid Resolution Therapy®, a method that is quick and lasting.

Here is a smattering of articles of how you can be of service this month:
4 Ways to Support a Friend who has experienced sexual assault by RAINN
Resources for raising awareness, getting help by Stop Street Harrassment
Participate in Denim Day on 4/27
Participate in Take Back the Night in your community or campus

If you or someone you know has been the victim of sexual assault, either recently, or not recently, get or suggest help to overcome any issues surrounding the trauma.

Not sure if there's trauma? Can you fill in these blanks:
Every time                 , I              .

This could be:
Every time I see a man with a beard, I get nervous.
Every time it thunders, I feel afraid.
Every time I am home alone, I get scared.
Every time I travel, I feel shaky in the dark hours.

Good therapy clears up all the associated negative feelings for good. If a therapist does not have an end date or end goal for you that they have clearly expressed and reiterated during your therapy, change therapists. Good therapy is focused on the end goal of resolving the problem. RRT® generally only takes a handful of sessions.
