No matter what you've been through, people will always want to know "what happened?" This question will be asked when someone is sexually assaulted, too. There are times when you will need to give details (for prosecution, or your own acknowledgement) and other times, when it's no one's business.

In the latest "Stop Feeding the Predators", host Lynn McClain talks about the graphic details of sexual assaults. (No actual details are given in this show. It is safe to listen.) She educates about who will need to know the graphic details, who doesn't, and why the details really don't matter in order to find YOUR emotional healing from sexual assault.
