Statement on the Nationality and Borders Bill from the Rape Crisis Movement

The Rape Crisis movement in Scotland stands together in opposition to the dangerous, dehumanising, and discriminatory Nationality and Borders Bill.

If implemented, this law would cause severe harms upon survivors of persecution and human rights abuse, including of sexual violence and trafficked exploitation.

Current vacancies

Established in 2018, Moray Rape Crisis provides therapeutic support, information and advocacy for children, young people and adults of all genders, aged 11 and over, in the Moray area, who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives, including rape, sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. We also work directly with young people in schools and youth settings, and with strategic partners, towards preventing sexual violence.

We are seeking the following experienced, motivated team members to help support and deliver the growth and development of our services.

Triggers, Flashbacks and Ways of Coping

What Are Flashbacks?

A flashback is when we re-experience a traumatic event from the past. This can last seconds or sometimes hours, often feeling more intrusive and sudden than a memory.

Flashbacks are a natural way in which our bodies and brains try to process what has happened to us and is experienced in a unique way to each survivor.

Some trauma survivors over time become aware of triggers which cause flashbacks. These can often be linked to our senses (touch, taste, smell, sight, sound) as we store trauma experiences in our bodies. This is often why we physically experience the senses of ‘fight or flight’ for example before knowing why.
