Want to help improve society's understanding of abuse?
Most survivors want to help prevent future abuse. One way to do this is to help researchers
who are trying to better understand abuse and its impact. And one way to do that is for survivors to participate in surveys by academics who are working to
learn more about abuse victims. If you are interested in helping by filling out an anonymous survey, please click here. . .
