Do your best to prevent that isolation by continuing to reach out with offers of support, regardless of how long it may take the person experiencing violence to accept that support.
Just as there is no “perfect victim,” there is no perfect way to intervene or offer support.
To avoid reinforcing these effects, resist making decisions on their behalf.
Rather than telling them what you think they should do, begin by asking them what they need to feel safe and supported.
Each person must consider what they’re prepared to offer.
