Almost two years ago, I was assaulted. This was not the first time I've had something like this happen to me.
I've been seeing a therapist for this, but haven't told her that much yet. She knows a bit about the first time I was sexually abused, but that's it.
Anyhow, I heard something somewhere about a therapist being required by law to report an assault to the police if it happened three or less years ago. Is this true? (I live in California, and am a minor, if that is any help...)
If it is true, how exactly do they report it? As in, if I don't give a name or any identifiable features, am I okay? Or do they file something, like, "Rachel Grace was assaulted on 18 December, 2004..."
How exactly does it all work?
Alternatively, if it's something similar but different, how does that work?
