Digging through a bunch of irrelevant pages
You have to dig through a bunch of irrelevant pages on the Saint Mary’s website to actually find the sexual violence policy. Um, and then that is basically it; there are no supporting documents around it, so it’s just floating in the air by itself and not easy to track down. [...] When you don’t really talk about this being a thing that we have in place, that we have these resources and these protocols in place in order to help people, then, of course, people aren’t gonna want to come forward if they think nothing is gonna happen.
Use open-ended questions and collaborative communication when supporting a victim/survivor.
Use approaches that are trauma informed and survivor-centred.
