  • Empower survivors to reclaim a sense of control over their lives and healing through their decision making.
  • Listen without judgement.
  • Be available. Let survivors and victims know you are there for them.
  • Be patient. Healing takes time.
  • Celebrate resilience and victoriesno matter how small.
  • Offer support, resources, and information.
