Just to add to that, one thing we talk to folks about—both the police and our clients—is the neurobiology of trauma, which really impacts what can happen in a courtroom. When survivors are in a courtroom and are facing a barrage of questions and often questioned in ways that are similar to internal monologues that have happened many times, they feel that secondary victimization. We know that happens, and it actually impacts their ability to recall accurate information. It directly impacts their ability to do so.
We know that we need to prepare them to withstand more trauma in order to tell their story. We work with them to prepare them for that.
