Recovering from Sexual Violence

Recovering from a sexual assault or abuse is a process, and that process looks different for everyone. It may take weeks, months, or years—there’s no timetable for healing. Below you’ll find some resources to help you navigate the process.


    For Survivors

  • Self-Care After Trauma - Whether it happened recently or years ago, self-care can help you cope with the short- and long-term effects of a trauma like sexual assault.
  • Tips for Survivors on Consuming Media - Movies and TV shows that show sexual assault, incest, and child sexual abuse can be very difficult for survivors to watch.
  • How Can Therapy Help? - If you decide to seek support from a therapist after sexual assault or abuse, you may have some questions. That’s perfectly normal. Working with a therapist can help you deal with some of the challenges you may be facing.
  • Airport Security for Survivors - Airport security can be stressful for any traveler, but for some survivors of sexual assault the security screening process is a little more sensitive.
