Our heart goes out to all those with friends and families in Haiti awaiting news following the devastating earthquake. For all people, this tragic event can lead to a range of reactions and responses: helplessness, overwhelming anxiety, fear, sadness, grief and loss, to name just a few common reactions. For those who are survivors of sexual violence, this current situation can trigger reactions and feelings from past trauma. The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center offers a twenty four hotline and free counseling services for those who need support.
