How to treat a sexual assault survivor in office or school?

Her soul shattered,

Her confidence destroyed,

Even God cried on her helplessness,

Scared to be in crowded place,

Standing alone with a static face,

Recovering with her own pace,

It was a trauma forever

Her thoughts weren't under her command,

Her feelings no more demanding,

She questioned herself,

"Was it my fault?" " Maybe yes, cause I went to him"

This guilt ate her like termites,

Ashamed of her body still trying to cope,

Recovering with her own pace,

It was trauma forever

Colours no more fascinates her,

Academic achievements aren't relaxing anymore to her,

Nightmares are her best friend

And triggers are a part of life now,

She still feels his dirty deeds over her body,

Recovering at her own pace,

It was a trauma forever.

She is unbreakable today

Just like a diamond,

She is as confident as a leader,

No one knows how she got this far,

She knows what still hurts deep down her heart,

Recovering at her own pace,

It was a trauma forever.

 

 

Effective communication is important to a victim’s well-being. If you are wondering what you can do, here are some suggestions:

• Remain calm. You may feel shocked or outraged, but expressing these emotions to the victim may cause confusion or discomfort.

• Believe the victim. Make it clear that you believe the assault happened and that the assault is not her or his fault.

• Give the victim control. Control was taken away during the assault. Empower the victim to make decisions about what steps to take next, and try to avoid telling her or him what to do.

• Be available for the victim to express a range of feelings: crying, screaming, being silent, etc. Remember, the victim is angry with the person who assaulted her or him

and the situation, not with you. Just be there to listen.

• Assure the victim of your support. She or he needs to know that regardless of what happened, your relationship will remain

intact.

" They have been questioned, judged,

Let's not make it harder for them,

Let's be a human,

Let's have a heart"
