There may already be a thread for this, but I was reading an article about forensic nurses and it got me thinking..."What DO you say to victims of crime?" What are you supposed to say and how would one go about 'breaking the ice' with someone who has just gone through a sexual assault or abuse? Can anyone share any experience with this issue? Or any advice would be welcomed too... I'm just baffled as to how we can get someone to talk about what happened to them without further traumatizing them. Anyway, thanks for any responses!
