A New Approach to Sexual Assault Treatment

   Sexual Assault not only results in feelings of fear, guilt, and an inability to trust, but it destroys what for many people is a wonderful part of their life-physical intimacy.  Many victims of sexual assault have trouble developing healthy, intimate relationships.  Some common examples:
   The Need to Control: Sexual assault takes a mutually enjoyable act, and turns it into control, stripping the emotion from it entirely.  Some victims try to regain that control over intimacy by refusing to share themselves.  Such women are often very sexually aggressive, and may enjoy the sensations of physical intimacy more than they did prior to the assault.  Such victims, however, have to keep themselves separate in order to protect themselves, and attempt to do so in one or more of the following ways: withholding or forcing orgasm, refusing to kiss, refusing to share feelings and concerns, or refusing sex just because it was not initiated by the victim.
   Inability to Control:  Perhaps the most unfortunate, some victims never attempt to regain the level of control they deserve and require to healthfully participate in physical intimacy, often allowing others to use the victim, often for personal selfish pleasure or other ends.  Victims suffering from Inability to Control often end up victimized again, some through sexual assault, others by significant others, granting them use regardless of sexual desire. 
   Lack of Interest:  After a sexual assault, some victims have lost all interest in sex.  They may tolerate it to please a lover, and feel the sensations normally, but are unable to focus on the sensation, concerned with nothing more than not reliving the assault.  Often found in combination with Inability to Control.
   Fear: The most common result, and sometimes found along with a Inability to Control, Lack of Interest, and rarely, Need to Control.  Victims of this problem are unable to feel safe, or have not fully confronted the assault, and are sometimes brought back to it by a simple touch or position similar to one used in the assault.

   Most modern sexual assault counsellors focus on re-building the trust and removing the guilt most victims feel.  Intimacy, however, remains difficult as ethics have prevented therapists from taking the actions necessary to reconstruct intimacy into a healthy, natural desire.  Many therapists are not comfortable performing the role necessary, and note the risk involved in such a treatment.  There is a chance the patient could develop further complications toward intimacy.  Many patients are not able to grant the very significant level of trust required for such a treatment to be successful.

Reinventing Intimacy
   This is a process that will place the victim in a submissive relationship to the therapist.  The reason for this is simple.  Because sexual assault takes away all control, many victims are not able to take the control back, or take too much back.  This process starts by having the patient relinquish control (but not consent) to the therapist.  In such a manner the control is transferred from a source of fear to a neutral entity.  From there, the therapist gradually returns the control back to the patient until a healthy balance is reached.  What makes this process work is the use of physical intimacy between the therapist and patient as part of the process. 

Required Actions
   Before beginning this treatment, the prospective patient must first undergo a blood test for sexually transmitted diseases.  The therapist is required to present a two blood tests.  One after the termination of his last such treatment, and one performed six months later, to ensure there are no dormant diseases present.  The prospective patient must also sign a wavier and consent form, the wavier freeing the therapist of legal recourse should the treatment be unsuccessful, the consent form legal proof that any physical intimacy between therapist/patient was performed as partof the treatment and not as a violation of therapist/patient relationship.  It also precludes sexual assault charges from being filed against the therapist, excluding failure to uphold "safe word" agreement (see below).

Safe Word
   Before treatment begins, a safe word must be chosen by the patient.  The safe word will be written on two copies, one for each party, and recorded for future identification.  All sessions will be filmed, and all uses of the safe word must be observed, regardless of tone or context, so choose carefully.

   Please ask your therapist any questions you may have before electing this treatment.  At your wish, questions and answers may be formally recorded to ensure no misunderstandings were taken advantage of.
