I have worked in the field of sexual violence and trauma most of my career. What follows are a few thoughts about Tara Reade and why her allegations need to be taken seriously. #IBelieveTaraReade
First- I have worked with hundreds of victims of sexual assault in my life as a director and then a senior director at two rape crisis centers in New York. Currently, I teach professionals about how victims disclose and how hmtrauma affects them.
I have trained thousands of professionals in the NY region and around the country on this subject. I have trained over 1,000 trial judges in NY in the past couple of years and as recently as the beginning of March of this year.
