Private Practice Speaks Out

On this weeks episode of Private Practice, Charlotte, played by KaDee Strickland is sexually assaulted. In the video clip below from FOXNY, Stickland thanks the hosts for talking about the episode and sexual assault. We here at One Student would like to thank Shonda Rhimes for bringing this important issue into our living rooms and for working with RAINN throughout the process to depict the raw truth of a survivor of sexual assault. Speaking out through TV shows is just one way we can bring this topic to the forefront and encourage people to talk about an issue that has been silent for far too long.

I have been a fan of the show from the start and one of the things I like most about it, aside from an incredibly attractive and drama filled cast is that the writers tackle controversial issues and push the envelope on subjects like abortion, sexuality, mental health, teen pregnancy and now sexual assault, topics that people are often uncomfortable talking about. I don’t know about you, but I am certainly going to tune in this week and encourage others to do the same.

Please comment here after the episode airs this Thursday night. We would love to hear your thoughts.

Forever a fan of RAINN and Shonda Rhimes,
Kelly

    Just want to say a word for survivors (both who have disclosed and those who have not) and their supporters.

    The episode was incredibly powerful and important. It is likely to trigger emotions and memories, if you’ve seen it already you know this and just a caution if you haven’t watched it yet.

    I just want to encourage those affected by the episode to reach out: call RAINN, your campus counseling center and victim advocacy centers, talk with your significant other or a trusted friend.

    I applaud them for doing such an excellent and raw portrayal of the reality of sexual violence. It appears from the previews that the continuation will be just as well done, emphasizing that the effects don’t end with the event itself, and the importance of healing.

    Aw, this was a really good post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a great article but what can I say
    I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get anything done.
