Brisbane psychologist Christine Bagley-Jones said the stories would be “very triggering” to women who had been sexually abused or assaulted.
“I anticipate we’ll get a spike in people that have experienced some sort of trauma,” she said.
“It often does happen that way when there’s something very topical in the media.
“It can give people a voice around their own experiences and help them realise the importance of getting help. Getting help is the most positive step towards any kind of recovery.”
