How To Overcome Sexual Harassment?

How To Overcome Sexual Harassment?

In India, crimes against women have been on the rise; they might have always happened at the same rate but today's media have become more attentive towards these crimes by bringing them to the forefront. Recently, the devastating news of an Assamese higher secondary student being raped and killed has surfaced. Her floating decomposed body was not discovered until 4th of May when the incident itself occurred on 28th of April. If a rape victim dies, it is the most unfortunate consequence that the parents and the loved ones have to live with but there are numerous victims who survive and they can lead a normal life with guidance and care. Any occurrence of sexual assault not only leaves scars on the outside but also have deeper psychological and emotional effects. The emotional scars can manifest in the form of post-traumatic disorder, depression and suicidal tendencies. If you know anyone who has undergone such an experience, then read on to find out how you can help her get back to her life.

  • Medical Examination: Physical effects of rape can be adverse on the victim. Forced sexual assault causes bruising, wounds and vaginal bleeding and immediate medical attention is required to ensure safety. Subsequent medical tests should also be carried out to check for Urinary Tract infection, Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and uterine fibroids.
  • Therapy: Wounds of the flesh heal, but it takes a lot of time to recover from emotional damage and in some cases the survivors bear the burden of psychological scars all through their lives. They may see the incident as an assault to their souls and develop depression, post-traumatic disorder, borderline personality disorder, sleeping and eating disorder. The loved ones have to be understanding and be patient with them. One-on-one therapy or group therapy sessions can be very helpful. Talking about their emotions and resolving issues of anger, regret, pain, fear, guilt in a friendly, supported and understanding environment can help them reconstruct their self-image.
  • Counseling: Guilt and shame are two most common stigmas that most survivors have to deal with. They somehow blame themselves for the incident and regret any step they think that might have led to the incident. They become so consumed by the incident that they think the experience defines them, instead of their persona which is called dissociative identity disorder. In such cases counseling sessions can prove to be very beneficial. They need guidance to understand the situation and separate themselves from the incident. The survivors may feel weak and victimized, overpowered and violated; they may also think that they have lost control of their bodies. Counseling can assist to resolve such issues and help them empower themselves with time.

It is important to make the survivors realize that it is not the end of their lives. With a positive attitude, proper rehabilitation and counseling rape survivors can lead a normal, happy life.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I work in a software firm. I feel very confused and sleepless for small things. For eg. I will share a incident. In a meeting my manager appreciated my work and asked what challenges I faced in front of everyone in the team. I felt shivering and blabbered something. The whole night I was thinking about that incident and told my friends. I always moaning my friends all the things. They tell me that don't worry for these things and if I stop moaning that would better help in resolving those small problems. Please don't advice me to attend the counselling. Give me some other useful tips like meditation, food habits, way to peace, etc. Thank you very much in advance.

Well, the choice is yours whether you want to go for counseling or not. You seem to have social anxiety and you can take the following measures: If you want to avoid meeting a counselor and want to something on your own do something to increase your fitness in five areas: physically by regular exercise, emotionally by dealing with your feelings, intellectually by cultivating good mental habits, socially by mixing and making a lot fo friends, and spiritually by being god-fearing and by loving other people as members of a shared family and operating​ with good values. About the issue itself: Do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? Have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? You can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Anyway, you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too! There are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy, and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good.

Dear lybrate-user, your wife may be having a dissociation disorder. It needs a private consultation with a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist. But it is not necessary to consult a neurologist. The more you care about her attacks, she will be having more attacks. Please try to care for her emotions and fears when she is normal and try to ignore her when she has attacks. Don't try to wake her up and give her water or sprinkle water on her face or take her from doctor to doctor and get blood and other tests done repeatedly. She will'wake up' on her own if she is left alone. She is unlikely to get an attack when she is alone. So safely you can leave her alone. These are temporary methods, till she talks to a psychiatrist or psychologist. Please get someone from her parent's house to take her to psychiatrist, if possible. Take the doctor's notes as non epileptic attacks to the psychiatrist.

Hello sir. I am very sorry for your loss. We all go through the process of mourning and have thoughts of those who have left us. We get distressed during the initial few months but gradually, we learn to accept our loss and cherish the fond memories. If we fight to block the thoughts, then this would trouble us more. Let the thoughts come, and. Let them go. Do not try to modify your experience. This will help in reducing your distress. You will gradually learn this, but keep trying. You can take deep and slow breaths, try yoga or other form of meditation to keep you relaxed. Keep doing your routine work. Do exercise. Eat healthy, sleep well. Avoid much of tea/coffee. Keep in touch with your family and friends. Just try to be" normal" with time, you will definitely get better. Please take care.

I am 16 years old. My mind is not stable. I always want to spend time out of home with friends. I feel very alone and I think that nobody understand me. I want peace but I can't getting it. Tell me what should I do? Please help me.

Absolutely not at all unusual, for your age. Let me explain what you are going through. You have just entered adolescence: During this time there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which you have no control: you will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and you will have acne and pimple problems. Then if you have unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel your uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that you yourself may not be aware of all this. At this time you will imagine like you do now that your mind is not stable because this is an age of conflict, confusion and a lot of stress peculiar to your age. To expect peace during this time is a real difficult ask. I am also concerned about the feeling lonely: if that is serious you may need to meet with a counselor and check if you are gong through rejection from your family or you feel they don?t love you. In which case wanting to be out with your friends might be more welcoming than being at home. In that case it is more serious to meet with a counselor who must meet with your parents too. You must learn to listen to your parents and when they are right join them but otherwise discuss sensibly when there are differences. Because of all this be very careful that you do not do the rebellious things driven by the hormones. You can channelize your energy to get involved in sports and games regularly. Watch the influence of your peer group because their influence will be irresistible. You are establishing yourself among your peers, and you will try to be fashionable in every way possible. What is outrageous to others is very much in, with youngsters today. You will be seeking a lot of attention from your friends and some of them think that they have to be horrendously different for social acceptance and you will need to join them for their acceptance (and you have no acceptance at home anyway!). I recommend that you go for career counseling also and determine that your aptitude for academic pursuits are in line with your skills.

Since you have taken vaccine already there is no point in worrying. Your mild pain and shortness of breath is due to anxiety as you have said Do not worry.
