Victimization is a crime against humanity more so that its intentionality marks it as a multi-dimensional problem that lingers long after the crime is committed. It adversely affects the victim and leaves the burden of healing solely to the victim who is already incapacitated by the trauma.
Creatively refocusing pain in my own opinion is one effective way to deal with the emotional and mental toil victimization takes on its victims…especially women. The experience leaves behind a story that may either be suppressed or told. Perspectives in story telling impacts the narrative and may engender a culture of silence that becomes a vicious circle without end.
