According to the PoSH Act the Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) can recommend a range of actions that includes one to one counselling, suspension, or terminating the employee. The emotional and psychological toll any kind of sexual assault takes on a person is immense. While assault by a stranger is traumatic, trauma associated with the assault by an acquaintance is even more serious owing to disbelief and breach of trust. These issues can negatively affect survivor’s personal relationships and work performance.
The fact that such an unfortunate incident has occurred inside the workplace makes the organization morally obligated to provide mental health support to the survivor.
We provide counselling for the survivor to help her overcome the trauma she faced. We help the individual come to terms with reality and reinforce the belief that it was not their fault.
We help the victim recover and integrate oneself into normal life.
