Sexual Trauma

Sexual trauma is unfortunately far from an isolated issue. Recent worldwide figures show that one in three women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by a partner or sexual violence by a non-partner. (The majority of this abuse is intimate partner violence—i.e. the perpetrators are not strangers.) Internationally, about 20% of women report being victims of sexual violence as children. In the case of sex-related PTSD (or trauma), it is an unwanted sexual encounter that is the trigger for these symptoms. Many of them have experienced sexual trauma in the form of a non-consensual encounter with someone they know (e.g., date rape), and childhood sexual abuse (often by a known family member, babysitter, or neighbor).

Although the effects of a sexual trauma can be lasting for some women, it is important to remember that many women heal from the effects of an unwanted sexual encounter. Women are incredibly resilient, and many are able to recover from the trauma completely with no long-term or ongoing difficulties.
