Summary written by Mrs. Dilworth Ricks, Culturally Specific Victim Service Advocate

Be better to yourself in 2020. As we enter the new year and people are making their New Year’s Resolution, let’s intentionally make taking care of ourselves a priority. 

Here are some of our favorite tips for self care taken from an easy read 34-page paperback book entitled “Self-Care After Sexual Assault: 10 Ways to Start Healing” by Alison Jennings. According to Amazon, this book is a road map for anyone who has been or may have been sexually assaulted.

Whether you (or someone you know) have been recently assaulted or were decades ago, you will gain insight into how you can take care of yourself. Mind, body, and spirit all need to be tended to after a traumatic event like sexual assault. The author speaks from her own two experiences with sexual assault. Not designed to take the place of therapy, physical help, or legal matters... but to act as a guide to reach healing.
