Phrase of the Day: Trigger Warning

Trigger warning:  Advance notice that sensitive issues, especially rape and sexual assault, will be discussed. This applies to class discussions, blog posts, coursework, reading, videos, etc.

Because sexual violence can be traumatic–to the point that survivors may experience PTSD–it is important to warn people before bringing up the trauma again.
