Identifying and treating adult survivors of sexual assault

Wellman, Ashley PhD

Abstract

ABSTRACT: About 18% of women and 3% of men report being a victim of sexual assault, but fewer than one-third of victims seek immediate medical attention or psychological counseling. Over time, victims may experience physical and emotional reactions and turn to primary care providers, who should be prepared to identify survivors of sexual assault and provide thoughtful referrals for long-term follow-up.
