David Baldwin's Trauma

Information Pages


These Trauma Pages focus primarily on emotional trauma and traumatic stress, including PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) and dissociation, whether following individual traumatic experience(s) or a large-scale disaster. The purpose of this award winning site is to provide information for clinicians and researchers in the traumatic-stress field. Specifically, my interests here include both clinical and research aspects of trauma responses and their resolution.

Jim Hopper’s Information Pages


I have several pages about child abuse – how prevalent it is, its potential effects, where to learn more and, if you're looking, how to find help for yourself or someone you care about.

My goal is to provide scholarly knowledge and resources, in language and formats accessible to any interested and motivated person – young or old, highly educated or not.

One in Four UK


219 Bromley Road




0208 697 2112


Our Purpose

One in Four offers a voice to and support for people who have experienced sexual abuse and sexual violence. Research has consistently shown that one in four children will experience sexual abuse before the age of 18. Society has thus far been unwilling to face up to the deep rooted nature of this problem or the sheer scale of the long term damage it leaves in its wake.Our determined aim is to change this.

Our Ethos

One in Four is an organisation run for and by people who have experienced sexual abuse. This means that every person who works within One In Four identifies that they have had a personal experience of sexual abuse at some point in their lives.We exist to give voice to the experience of people who have been sexually abuse and to provide a space that by its very existence challenges feelings of shame and self blame. In the often perceived hopelessness and despair of such trauma the reality of meeting another, one who has undertaken that journey themselves, offers hope and encouragement. The creation of a community that bears witness to the isolating and silenced reality of sexual abuse fundamentally changes that reality.

What we do

We provide a unique service to individuals, both directly and indirectly. Directly, through individual therapy and helpline support. Indirectly through campaigning, policy making, in-house research, training, and consultancy work with statutory and non statutory agencies.

We understand the effect which male rape and sexual abuse can have upon those who are forced to experience it, and we're well aware of the traumatic process which it can set in motion. If you are a man who has suffered sexual abuse or rape in the past, you can turn to us for help. We have a range of support options to help you recover from your experience and put the past behind you.
