Your professional training didn't teach you how to respond to abuse survivors
but you likely see 2-8 female survivors every day.
You worry about saying the right thing, the wrong thing and resources to offer. Maybe you avoid doing or saying anything because you're not a mental health professional. The bad news is that indecision, avoidance or guessing can cause you to lose clients & patients.
The good news is that you can work better and with greater confidence. Here's how:
When Survivors Give Birth: Understanding how child sexual abuse and rape can affect women in pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum;
Beyond "Intimacy Issues": How past sexual abuse in women can affect emotional & physical health across a lifetime;
Active Listening 200: How to Elicit a Trauma-Informed History including what to say; what not to say & best questions for better outcomes;
The Pain May Go Away But The Impact Can Linger A Lifetime: How and Why Providers MUST ask About Past Sexual Abuse;
