My significant other was raped? What can I do to help?

Acknowledge that the rape has happened and be supportive of your partner. If your partner resists or is unable to resume sexual activity, do not view this as a rejection of yourself personally. Additional couples counseling or family counseling may be necessary to help everyone process this traumatic event together and provide a supportive, safe environment to work through the aftermath.
Making an effort to understand what your partner is going through and how they may be feeling will go a long way towards healing for everyone involved.
