As you know, the mission of this blog is to provide hope and healing for survivors of sexual abuse and assault. Part of that mission is to provide helpful and accurate resources for those working to support survivors. To this end, I recently created a video for therapists to help them understand the reality of the struggle clients in crisis go through when processing what has happened to them.

This particular video would also be a good resource for families or friends of survivors with questions like:
"Why didn't you tell someone sooner?"
"Why didn't you go to the police?"
"Why didn't you feel people would believe you?"
You know the answers to those questions, but it's very hard to put the answers into words. This video is here to help you do that!
Did this video help answer some of your questions as a counselor or therapist? How do you plan on using this information to help survivors?
