You can feel so ashamed
You can feel so ashamed. Like, "I just want to forget about it," [in a whisper] "I don't ever want to think about it again," "I don't want to have to deal with it," and "I don't want to feel that I'm weak by not doing anything."
Use approaches that are trauma informed and survivor-centred.
Present learning materials in a way that is helpful to a friend supporting a victim/survivor.
Emphasize the victim's right to decide whether they would like to report the incident after they have disclosed it to the university. Ensure the victim is aware of the formal and informal routes for reporting, including the option of reporting to the police. Clearly communicate any limits to confidentiality.
