Checklist for helping a sexual assault survivor

This is an updated checklist for helping a sexual assault survivor that I designed in an attempt to simplify the order and importance of questions that should be addressed when helping or meeting with a sexual assault survivor. It is not a traditional flow chart or hierarchy - where preceding steps must be completed before continuing on. It is essentially a checklist, where dichotomous "Yes/No" questions are asked. If the answer is "Yes" the next step is listed on the left, and if the answer to the question is "No," the next step is found to the right.

Feel free to copy this format! The feedback I have gotten so far has been very positive. I think it is an easily readable guide that might come in handy when dealing with a difficult situation.
