Rachel Thompson, @RachelintheOC, who is the founder of Sex Abuse Chat and Monday Blogs, lead a TweetChat on the 14th of October, which was moderated by Melissa Flicks @MelissaFlicks. The chat was directed towards the trauma caused by sexual assault and the process of recovery which follows after such a tragedy. There were a variety of problems called into question such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression and more. The participants discussed the symptoms and factors pertaining to these disorders. In addition, ideas of self-help were brought out such as journaling and writing in order to express emotions and feelings. Not only this but the difference between experiencing sexual assault as a child versus as an adult was also incorporated into the talk.
