How might we work with sexual assault survivors to understand what kind of support they need for long term healing.
How might we work with sexual assault survivors to improve their experience when sharing their trauma with loved ones.
How might we work with sexual assault survivors to build community in support of their healing.
I'm seeking to solve the problem of Sexual Assault survivors navigating the healing process alone. Many survivors never share their experience or are met with guilt, shame, and disbelief when they do. After creating my ecosystem map I observed that most help for survivors is in the area of "self help". While there are relationships that survivors can lean on for support (in the interpersonal section) that doesn't mean that those relationships are supportive or positive. I would like to focus on that interpersonal area and understand how to make it less painful and more supportive.
