(“Flashbacks…”) Distraction is caused by a permanent “heavy mind”. Whether they are directly thinking about the experience or not, the sexual abuse is constantly in the back of their mind. Victims find it difficult to open up to others, especially when sharing what had happened to them. In order to conceal their story, “victims may sacrifice their cognitive abilities”.

The results of the survey showed that the overwhelming majority of abusers and victims who were involved in verbal and controlling form of domestic violence were homosexual partners. These forms of control, although common in heterosexual battering cases, have much different technique in same sex cases. One example of controlling aggression includes threatening to exploit, or “out” their partner’s sexuality, if they are still in the closet.

Generally, rape survivors report feeling powerless, shock, guilt, depression, anxiety, shame, embarrassment, and disbelief during this phase.
