For example, the author stated, “My message to Brock Turner is the damage you inflicted is irreversible…Those moments you assaulted her were just the beginning; you took her down with you because you failed.” This shows that what he did was dehumanizing and traumatizing to the victim and her family. The author wanted him to realized that what he did was not acceptable. More so, she also stated, “We were too drained to speak but needed each other’s presence.…

    Barriers to Service As previously mentioned, disclosure is the first step toward healing after sexual assault. Unfortunately, for many victims, it is also the most difficult step to take. There are numerous reasons victims hesitate to disclose. These include fear of navigating the justice system, worry about retribution or further attacks by the assailant, shame, self-blame, and confusion about the assault (Baker et al., 2012). Research further indicates that many victims do not disclose incidents of sexual assault due to concerns about stigmatisation, blame and other negative responses from those to whom they disclose (Baker et al., 2012).…

    Depression and anxiety are one of the most common metal illnesses foster kids have due to the fact that they live in an abusive environment where they are not even wanted by anyone there. Children will have to face this all alone by themselves because no one will take the time to care, to love, to listen to them and they grow up feeling unwanted by everyone around them, so they can never just “let it go”. They hold on the past because that’s all they have to keep going. Mental illness is a serious issue many people face throughout their life, especially the foster children who just wanted to be cared…

In Social Construction of Violence, Muehlenhard and Kimes discovered “if an incident does not fit the definition of any one of these groups, it will drop out of the legal system.

Police are one of the main groups who define what sexual or domestic violence is.…
