ABSTRACT


According to the Biblical basic psychological traumatic reference in Genesis 2:9. The truncation cord between God and Adam was typically a great depression on both God and Adam; the effect was spelled out by the critical action that erupted from God to him. God wasn’t in a very peace of mind when He saw that Adam has been deprived of his virtue and identity also make him less valued to divinity by accepting the scenario of what Satan placed before Eve (Adam) though satan diplomacy was not on the treated topic but a reference to trauma that any victim of rape could probably involve which the evolving can be elongated beyond repair. 


Therefore, this project is subject to bring out the genesis, the definitions, the reasons, the effect and the solution on the victim (especially for those said age ranges), the parent, the society and even the violators (because they also become a victim by the reason of their actions)


Absolutely there’s no other way out of any particular problem than to secure a better revolutionary solution against being repeated. One of the most important overrated human parts is the psychological web is primarily for life peaceable agreement to self and to the world. There’s no relationship without the complete perfect peace of mind that should always stand against any way it want to jeopardize the technicality and the mechanism of the entire tripartite of both the host and environs 


The understanding and knowledge to be in agreement of what nature dictates must be in line with the systematic approach of human’s health world. Nobody achieves any projected dreams without being in a good state of mind. The beauty of every man is in their concept to engage and disengage whatsoever present to be a force. The Bible says, “we have been given power to attain wealth”. Now the conception of the radicalism of that injection is ability to stand in the figurative ideology that will propel the gunshot to hit the target, irrespective of daily mountainous hyperbolic object against man’s struggle


The day a mad-man discovers his state of madness, the same hour his senses are restored, said one of the “Yoruba” proverbs, a group of ethnics in Nigeria. This means, mental illness is the principal dangerous phenomenon in the world of human stability. The peace of every one is his/her mind-set.
