Research Participation Request

Participants are needed for a research study examining how women make sense of their experience of sexual assault and manage their recovery. If you are a woman aged 18 years or older and have experienced one or more incidents of unwanted sexual contact as an adult (i.e., when you were 16 years or older), you are eligible to participate. Your responses to the survey items will be kept confidential. The online survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. Please click this link connect to the consent form and questionnaire:

To thank you for your participation, you may enter an optional drawing awarding a $25 gift card to 20 randomly selected persons. If you wish to be entered into the drawing without participating in the study, please send an email to lhamrick@vols.utk.edu requesting to do so. This research protocol has been reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board for protection of human subjects at the University of Tennessee UTK IRB-18-04792-XP, expiration 11/06/2019.

How to Help

“This is not love, it is a crime.
You cannot look the other way just because you
have not experienced domestic violence with your own flesh.”

-Salma Hayek
