April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. CFT’s Link of the Day blog will feature a variety of posts about this issue during the month.
“Safety planning is about brainstorming ways to stay safe that may also help reduce the risk of future harm. It can include planning for a future crisis, considering your options, and making decisions about your next steps. Finding ways to stay and feel safer can be an important step towards healing, and these plans and actions should not increase the risk of being hurt.” Read “Safety Planning” on the RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) website.
“These crimes are widespread and occur daily in our communities, schools, and workplaces, but sexual violence can be prevented. Community members can work to prevent sexual violence by establishing healthy and positive relationships that are based on respect, safety, and equality.” Read “Understanding sexual violence: Tips for parents & caregivers of children” from the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.
