Secondary Survivors Coping With Us
are a secondary survivor if a friend, partner, girlfriend, boyfriend, mother,
sister, child, or anyone you are very close to is a survivor of sexual assault,
physical or emotional abuse. Even if the assault or abuse happened a long
time ago, you may be the first person they have told and your reaction can have
a tremendous impact on the rest of the recovery process. Often, secondary
survivors go through many of the same feelings that survivor's experience. You
can feel powerless, guilty, shocked, angry, or scared. On today's show, we will
be speaking with Ginger's best friend, Melanie, on what it is like to be a
secondary survivor, what her emotions were like when Ginger told her story, and
what it is like to be on this journey. Join Ginger and Haullie as they unlock
the truth and bring awareness regarding secondary survivors and how they cope
