If complainant does not wish to seek services, it is helpful to remind them that being examined by a medical professional can help protect against sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy, and other concerns. You also can share that a proper medical examination can help preserve evidence, should the complainant decide to pursue prosecution.
Because the survivor has been through such a traumatic event, they may struggle with talking about the event, remembering details, etc., in a way that is different from victims of other types of crime. Do not insist or demand information from the survivor, as they may not be comfortable disclosing such information to you. Remember, as a CSA any information reported to you cannot be kept confidential. Document what is reported to you in the Campus Security Authority reporting form.
