Predictors of Injury Associated with Rape

Crane, Patricia A.


The purpose of this study was to assess predictors of injury in a preliminary model with victim and forensic characteristics as variables. Assessment of predictors will fill gaps in the literature, help clinicians improve datagathering methods, and identify characteristics associated with rape‐related injury of women who may be at higher risk for subsequent poor health.
