— What part of the brain is more hyper and less hyper?

What have we learned about the part of the brain, which reacts to trauma?

We need to provide care, emotional support for victims of sexual assault.

Provide informational support – give options/ and give victims time to make decisions. 

Connect victims to appropriate advocacy & support services to make specific referrals.

— Finally, we must learn to make referrals by name, by the real names of the expert & not by acronyms.
