So, I probably don’t need to point this out, but it’s February and Cupid’s favorite holiday is quickly approaching.  Valentine’s Day is either a beloved holiday or one that the card companies bombard us with, compelling us to purchase the latest adorable puppy card. Whatever your feelings are about this red and pink explosion of a holiday, I wanted to mention that February is also Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month.

From the perspective of the mainstream victim rights movement, law enforcement should serve as one tool to support the goals of justice and restoration after sexual violence. It’s one option that people who experience sexual violence have as they decide the next turn they will take on their path to healing. 

In the best of scenarios, a victim who chooses to make a report to law enforcement is believed, provided with options and choices, interviewed in a trauma-informed manner, and feels that the experience of was beneficial, regardless of the outcome.
