    A Place to Grow
    Gina Weiss is the author of the article "A Place to Grow" and believes sexual abuse of children is an issue in the collective consciousness of society, and it will remain so until enough healing has occurred to stem the tide of abuse. She suggests that as more survivors and perpetrators of abuse are healed, the overall level of denial in the collective consciousness will be reduced. Thereby paving the way for faster healing in the future such that at some point, there will be no more abuse.'sRoleEndingAbuse.pdf - 4-Mar-2005 - Hits: 2366 - Rate This | Details
    Acquaintance Rape: A Matter of Consent by Dr. Amy Menna
    The title of this article is "Acquaintance Rape: A Matter of Consent" by Dr. Amy Menna.

    "Rape. It is a powerful word for a power hungry act. It breeds fear and in many cases, it breeds silence. It is important that this silence be broken, and survivors be heard. By doing so, we break the grasp that rape has upon so many. The aftermath can be immense. The journey to heal may be terrifying; the steps, long and tedious. By building a bridge of awareness and empowerment, woman and men who have experienced rape can be healed and heard." - 24-Feb-2010 - Hits: 643 - Rate This | Details

    Trauma in American Indian Communities
    This article explores the unique experience of trauma faced by American Indian tribes throughout the United States. Although each tribe represents a distinct cultural group, American Indians share a similar history in that the populations were decimated by colonization and the westward movement. Additionally, many American Indian communities experience losses on a daily basis. In some cases the historical losses, current experiences of loss, and witnessing violent events can result in symptoms of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. - 30-Jan-2008 - Hits: 252 - Rate This | Details
