It’s not always easy to know what to say when someone tells you they’ve been sexually assaulted. As spiritual leaders, chaplains and clergy we will often be in a position to meet these survivors in crisis. How comfortable are you listening to these narratives? What triggers do you have to navigate? Learn from professionals about some of the do’s and don’t of providing short term and long term care to survivors, while exploring your own understanding and feelings.
