About this Site and the Study

This site was initially created with the purpose to serve as a platform for our study. Today we maintain it for archive purposes and to offer a list of studies directly or indirectly related to various forms of violence. We do not actively maintain it so don't expect to find much new information on the site if you come here later.

The purpose of the study was to help us better understand how people who have had unwanted sexual experiences deal with the experience(s).

This study has been conducted by Carrie M. Carretta, PhD, APN, AHN-BC, Principal Investigator.

In order to participate in the study, visitors were asked to access the secure REDCap survey system maintained by The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey via a secure link, be screened for eligibility and, if eligible, complete the study instruments.

The system offered the ability to begin the survey and come back to finish it at another time if those taking it were unable to complete the entire survey in one sitting.
