Many times the victim ends up blaming themselves for the sexual assault and the shame that takes hold of them so deeply prevents them from revealing the truth. So many factors play a role in victims not reporting it to anyone. For example, if the perpetrator was a family member like an uncle, brother, dad, grandfather, close family friend, etc. sometimes they don’t want to cause havoc in the family or be the reason the family breaks up or kill each other so they keep it a secret.
What Else Keeps You Silent?
If it’s in the workplace, for example, the victim may feel powerless as they may not be in a role of authority as we have seen in cases of women reporting their sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein or the men reporting their sexual abuse by Priests as children. Prior to the #MeToo movement, authorities did not pay much attention to men or women reporting their sexual assault especially by a person of power or celebrity in the case of Bill Cosby.
How Deep Does It Rip You Off From Inside?
Millions of women today are revealing that Dr. Ford’s raw testimony brought up their own secretive painful past of sexual abuse or sexual assault. Some women are revealing that they thought they had dealt with it but the testimony brought it all back to the surface for them. Cases of sexual abuse and sexual assault are quite prevalent in therapies of all kinds. Sexual assault and sexual abuse affects victims in so many different ways as they continue to live on in life. Whether its weight issues, substance abuse, relationship issues, fears, anxieties, serious mental illnesses like schizophrenia, chronic depression, body aches and pain that are sometimes unexplainable, it even affects the way a person thinks, behaves, and communicates with others.
The scope of how much sexual abuse and sexual assault affects a person is extremely vast, affecting the individual from physical level to emotional level to mental level and even on spiritual level too. In hypnotherapy, we are able to help the individual on all these levels so they can move on with the flow of life no longer having the horror of their past shown to them through issues they are currently facing in life.
