Get NCSF's pamphlet on Trauma

on Tuesday, 09 August 2016. Posted in Consent Counts, Front Page Headline, NCSF News

NCSF’s Trauma pamphlet is intended to help both survivors of traumatic experiences and the people around them. Community organizers have been asking NCSF for more information on how people react when they’re traumatized so they can better help their members when they are in need.

We worked with over a dozen Kink Aware Professionals to create this pamphlet:

• Learn about short-term reactions such as shock, denial and fear of judgment or retaliation. Also possible ongoing challenges like anxiety, engaging in high risk behaviors or feelings of detachment or isolation.

• Find out what you can do (and friends and loved ones can say) to help you ease the pain and transition to healing.

• Get information on PTSD and trauma bonds, which form in the presence of danger, shame or exploitation.

Help is available for people who have been injured and their loved ones. This includes free mental health counseling, emergency medical care, possible recouping of lost wages, and a safe and confidential shelter that removes you from imminent harm or danger if you need to get out of your house.

You don’t have to go it alone. NCSF trains local victim services on BDSM vs. abuse. Call your local rape crisis hotline or contact NCSF’s Incident Reporting & Response for help for you or a friend at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
