Welcome to episode 121 of Sexology Podcast. Today, I am delighted to welcome Dr. Carmon Roman to the podcast. In this episode, we will analyze why sexual assault survivors might not report the assaults. Furthermore, we’ll review the approaches to helping survivors during their journey of recovery.

Dr. Roman is a caring listener with over 25 years of experience in providing psychotherapy, in Mexico and California. She is also the host of a wonderful, bilingual weekly podcast, Emotions in Harmony, through which she weaves together the psychology and spirituality of both cultures.

In this episode, you will hear about:

  • History of Denim Day
  • Emotional barriers that might get in a way of reporting an assault
  • Best ways for victims to protect themselves if they choose to report
  • Role of family members in supporting survivors of sexual abuse
  • True vs. false beliefs that a survivor might develop as a consequent of the incident
  • The process of recovery
