Resources

当你得知你认识的人遭受性侵犯时,你可能很难知道该说什么, 关系暴力或跟踪. 这些建议将以一种支持性的方式鼓励和帮助受害者幸存者,使他们感到不那么孤立和安全.

  • Listen 让受害者说话并引导谈话可以帮助他们重新获得控制感. Let them decide what they want to talk about and when they want to talk about it.
  • Believe them Our culture often makes it very difficult to talk about sexual violence, and the fear of not being believed is a very real concern for people who have been victimized. 不要助长这种恐惧.
  • Empower them Assure the victim survivor that they are not to blame for the violence, 不管当时的情况如何. 同样重要的是,受害者幸存者有权自己决定是否报告.
  • Do not judge how 受害者幸存者在事件发生期间或之后做出反应. Understand that they handled the situation the best they could.
  • Be mindful 当问及这件事时. You do not want to seem judgmental, condescending or otherwise unsupportive.
  • Be supportive 受害者和幸存者的决定. Victim survivors have a number of options and resources that may seem overwhelming. Whether or not they report the incident, press charges, attend counseling, etc., is not up to you. But, don’t be entirely uninvolved — they might ask for your opinion or advice, 寻求医疗和情感帮助都是积极的.
  • Be respectful 受害者幸存者的隐私. The victim survivor deserves their space and this time to themselves.
  • Accept that there might be changes in the victim survivor's personality or in your relationship. Sexual violence is a traumatic experience that can change a person, 康复过程需要时间.
  • Be aware 你可能也需要支持. 照顾好自己,处理好自己的感受.
  • Be careful not to overwhelm the victim survivor with your own emotions. If you seek support from someone, be sure to maintain the victim survivor's anonymity.

LGBTQIA个体遭受性暴力的比例高于异性恋者. 作为LGBTQIA个体报告性暴力可能会带来额外的困难,因为报告可能会引起对报告过程中披露的担忧. 这些都是非常现实的问题,但我们强烈建议你在校园和社区寻求支持和可用的资源.

LGBTQIA个人的资源包括:

  • 了解你的孩子是否没有立即告诉你这件事,或者他们是否没有第一个来找你. There are a number of reasons why they might avoid telling you about it. 而不是关注他们为什么迟迟不来找你, 你应该引导你的精力去帮助他们愈合. 不要要求他们为自己的决定辩护或辩护.
  • 诚实地告诉你的孩子你的感受——承认这是一个很难讨论的话题是可以的, but be clear that you are willing to talk and listen about anything.
  • Control your emotions when talking to your child about the incident. 你可能会有很多感觉,包括悲伤, anger, guilt or even shame, but try not to let your feelings overshadow those of your child. 孩子们很难看到他们的父母挣扎, and they might feel guilty for upsetting you if your emotions get out of hand.
  • 意识到你无法解决问题. You might feel tempted to push your child to seek legal justice or other types of “solutions,“但是没有办法让袭击消失. Let your child make their own decisions and be supportive of those choices.
  • 不要忘记照顾好自己,花点时间来接受自己对性侵的感受——如果需要的话,寻求专业帮助. 在其他情绪中,你可能会感到内疚.
