The consequences of victimisation and abuse.
We are in the process of writing a post about the consequences of victimisation and abuse – we need your help.
At EVA, we have years of personal and professional experience regarding the impact of victimisation and abuse (specifically around Domestic and/or Sexual Violence and abuse). The impact upon the victim is at the core of this piece, however, we are also mindful that victimisation has a ripple effect – on family and friends, other survivors, employers, the criminal justice system and so on.
We think it is important to make this post a collective piece – a range of voices, thoughts and experiences will strengthen this post significantly.
So far, the areas that we are focusing on regarding the consequences of victimisation and abuse are:
- The impact upon the victim (physically, emotionally/psychologically, financially and socially)
- The ripple effect upon:
- Friends and family
- Other victims/survivors
- Local community
- Justice system
- Health system
If you have experience of thoughts on the impact of victimisation and abuse on one or more of the areas listed above, please get in touch regarding:
- What/who is affected by victimisation and abuse
- The impact/consequences.
If you have studies/posts/evidence to support your input, please include them too.
