CARE: Communication and Recovery Enhancement

Project Period:

01/01/2021 — 12/31/2023

After a sexual assault, many of survivors’ loved ones want to help, but aren’t sure what to do. We’re conducting a research study to evaluate CARE, a 2-session trauma care program that aims to change that. Recent survivors and their supporters enroll together, as a pair, and receive the CARE program at no cost via video appointment. Survivors and supporters are each invited to complete 5 paid surveys to help us understand the impact of the CARE program. Survivors and supporters may be eligible if the survivor’s sexual assault was in the past 10 weeks, both are at least 14 years old, and they both speak either English or Spanish
