Sexual Assault in Intimate Partner Relationships
Time & Location
About the Event
More than 35% of women and 30% of men report sexual violence, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. In American Indian/Alaska Native populations, that number nearly doubles. In this session, we will discuss the prevalence of intimate partner sexual assault, the challenges associated with reporting and the specific healthcare and safety needs that should be addressed for these individuals.
