Hi, my name is Tara and I am a researcher at a University in Northern Ireland. I would like to ask for your participation in a research study if you are a survivor of sexual trauma. The purpose of this study will be to investigate the effects of a broad range of traumatic events on later adult well-being. The research aims to promote the needs and interests of individual survivors and to improve service provision and responses to sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse. The survey consists of several questions and requires approximately 30 minutes of your time. All your data will be treated as strictly confidential and analysed anonymously. You will not be asked to provide information that could be used to identify you. You can leave the survey at any point without giving reasons.

If you have any queries or questions please contact me at oneill-t2@email.ulster.ac.uk Thank you for taking the time to read this. Your input into this survey would be very helpful. If you are over 18 years old and wish to participate, please copy and paste the link below:
