Meeting 3 essential sexual trauma recovery needs

By Jeni Ambrose | Executive Director

Providing 3 essential needs
Providing 3 essential needs

For decades, experts in the field of psychology have understood there are 3 basic necessities for recovering from sexual trauma: safely telling, getting help, and connecting with others who understand and care. Designed by trauma therapy specialists, MapYourVoice provides universal access to these essential recovery steps to survivors in every city, town and village across the globe.

 

#1 SAFELY TELLING

Often when survivors tell about their assault, they are met with a less-than-supportive response. This can add more pain and isolation to an already traumatic experience. MapYourVoice provides a safe, anonymous, and therapeutic process for taking the first essential step of telling. And because it can feel unsafe to speak up in-person, survivors benefit from the distance, anonymity, and security of our web-based platform.

 

#2 GETTING HELP

Our ever-growing network of support includes 1000’s of “street-level service organizations” to support survivors with their specific needs. Be it police protection, emergency medical care, counseling services, safe havens, suicide prevention, legal aid, child protection, crisis intervention and more, MapYourVoice gives survivors the easiest and fastest route to pinpoint and access appropriate local support.

 

#3 CONNECTING WITH OTHERS

Sexual violence is a very isolating experience - survivors are left feeling very alone with their trauma. By witnessing the stories of other survivors, and being witnessed, each survivor can gain the cathartic experience of knowing they are not alone and that others indeed understand what they have been through. This can help to re-infuse life with meaning and give a more accurate, less self-harming perspective on the assault.

 

Thanks for being a part of our global network of people who care about survivors and act with MapYourVoice to end sexual violence worldwide.
