When someone is the victim of sexual assault, the first person he or she talks to is critical. Knowing the right thing to say and how to help that person find the right resources can make a big difference in recovery, local advocates who work with sexual assault victims say.

When the assault happens to a college student or on campus, the first person the victim encounters is likely to be a residence hall staff member. 

At Allen Community College, residence hall staff attend extensive training at least twice a year to help them deal with those very difficult situations.
