This tool will enable you to quickly and effectively communicate the multiple impacts of sexual violence. This poster lists the various consequences that can be experienced by a survivor of sexual violence.
In a structured manner, the poster highlights the different spheres of overall health, such as mental, physical, cognitive, emotional, sexual and relational health. The poster is presented as a single page, making it easy to understand and quick to read.
How to use the poster?
We recommend this tool to intervention workers who wish to access to real-life examples of the impact of violence on victims. We also think it is a good idea to include it in your interventions, since the repercussions of sexual violence vary from one person to the next, evolve and can last for a long time. You could hang it in your workplace to make this information readily available to everyone.
The YWCA expertise
For several years, the YWCA Montreal has been working on the creation of tools for workers whose mandate it is to prevent violence and reduce social and gender inequalities. The creation of this poster was made possible thanks to funding from the Secrétariat à la condition féminine du Québec.
