The University of Hawai'i is conducting a study

Examining Healing Trajectories for Survivors of Rape and Sexual Assault

Are you a survivor of sexual assault and/or rape?

Would you like to share your experience in healing to help improve services for survivors?

You are invited to participate in a research study.

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the process of healing after sexual violence. The information gained from the project will help to improve services for survivors. Participation includes:

* An optional follow-up phone interview about your healing process and therapy usage.
