Survey: 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 this 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.
If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please visit: https://manoahawaiiss.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3EtYqzHDamy2wbH<https://protect-za.mimecast.com/s/xRcVCxGzZ5F1jNP4s82Ghw>
