Re-Examining Sex Assault and Teen Survivors

Counseling and healing after sexual assault

Do we need to re-examine how we view the issue of sexual assault and teen survivors? Over the past year… The Fairfax County school system has been in a legal battle over how it has handled accusations of sexual assault brought by a high school student.  That’s just the latest, but the county has several questionable cases going back years. Duke Ellington school of the Arts in DC is under scrutiny because of allegations against a former teacher.  Those accusations also going back many years.  This is sexual assault awareness month and were looking into how this issue affects teenage survivors.
