Research Study Title: Women Sexual Assault Survivors’ Attitudes and Experiences Survey Researcher(s): Charlotte Strauss Swanson, M.S.W., University of Tennessee Knoxville

We are a research team in the Department of Psychology at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. We are conducting a study on women sexual assault survivors’ attitudes and experiences. This online research survey will ask you to answer questions about your feelings, thoughts, and experiences you may have had as a sexual assault survivor, participation in various types of activities, mental health, and demographics. We invite you to participate in this survey to help us better understand the lives of women, including the impact of assault on psychological health.
