Examining Healing Trajectories for Survivors of Rape and Sexual Assault

If you are a survivor of sexual assault and/or rape, please consider participating in a study exploring the types of therapeutic services and healing practices that are used by survivors. The study is an anonymous online survey that will take approximately 30 minutes to complete with an optional follow-up phone interview for survivors who are interested. The purpose of this study is to increase awareness and understanding of the healing process after sexual violence in order to hopefully improve services for survivors.

WHAT IS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

Domestic violence is a pattern of assaultive and coercive behaviors that adults or adolescents use against their current or former intimate partners or other family members within the home. Domestic violence occurs in families and in intimate relationships where the perpetrator and the victim are currently or previously have been dating, living together, married or divorced. LEARN MORE

WHAT IS SEXUAL VIOLENCE?

Sexual violence occurs when someone is forced or manipulated into unwanted sexual activity without his or her consent. It is purposeful, violent behavior. LEARN MORE

WHAT YOU CAN DO IF YOU ARE BEING ABUSED

Talk with someone you trust about the abuse.   Call Citizens Against Domestic Violence/Victim Outreach Center Hotline at 1-888-809-SAFE (7233). Call the police if you are in danger. Remember, you know your situation better than anyone else. Don’t let someone talk you into doing something that isn’t right for you. LEARN MORE
