2036: Understanding the Impact the Perpetrator/Victim Relationship has on Unwanted Sexual Experiences
The in progress study examines the perpetrator/victim relationship (e.g. intimate partner, non intimate known, stranger) and the sequelae (e.g. depression, anxiety, PTSD) known as rape trauma. The perpetrator/victim relationship and coping are important to consider when assessing victims; information leading to more effective treatment outcomes may be realized.
