Need: pscho social support?
Thank you so much to the world pulse team for the amazing work and journeys that you have brought to our door steps, lap tops, phones and ears just by clicking on the wonderful link.
The experiences shared by the women and gallant men on world pulse have to varying degrees, invoked me to anger, tears, frustration, sorrow and also in equal measure happiness, victory, serenity, joy as a result of the depth of the pain, violence, injustices, trauma, biases and the triumphs, patience, learning, victory of the authors in the experiences shared. However one question kept cropping up in my mind whenever i would read one of the more gruesome stories and i find myself raising this question here.
The stories that have been told and even those untold depict a lot of pain, hurt, grieving on the part of those that have experienced varied cruel injustices at the hands of their families, communities and governments, I totally agree that speaking up is a monumental step to healing, seeking support, learning and fighting back, however the deep rooted scars sometimes have a way of cracking open later if the wounds were not truly healed and this is why i have been pondering on this issue of provision of some form of psycho social support for the travelers on world pulse, some of whom might not have boldly spoken up or had the opportunity to speak to the amazing women with similar experiences on world pulse.
So is there a way some form of psycho social support, counseling can be provided or programmed into the network or a link provided to the women to talk to a professional counselor.
cheers, thanks, looking forward to your response on this.
