While each person’s response to sexual violence is unique, there are some common responses that many people report in the course of their healing. In addition to feelings of guilt or shame, changes in sleeping patterns and flashbacks to the event, many people report eating disorders. NRCDV's September 2011 TA Question of the Month explores the connection between sexual violence and eating disorders.
