Hi everyone. I am a 31 year old counselor and just made a few reports to the American Psychological Association and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission regarding sexual misconduct at a job. I went in with intentions of getting the remainder of my hours required for my boards. However, I was hit with a curve ball of sexual comments and objectifying behaviors. I’ve worked very hard to get to where I am academically and professionally, oftentimes working four jobs at a time and sleepless nights to pay for rent/food/books/some tuition and study to achieve my 3.7 gpa. I guess I need advice as far as how to move forward and not feel so defeated/blaming myself for being naive to not see the red flags while they were happening as well as never let this happen again. I have ambition of beginning my own practice to work with women who have been sexually harassed as well as children of sexual abuse. But when I hear these things, I can feel so defeated and overwhelmed- I guess it’s a reminder of how much work there is still to do with advocating. Thanks for help in advance!
