This training module is designed to explain the impact of sexual assault victimization, including effects seen on the physical, psychological, economic, and emotional well-being of victims. The module will describe common behaviors and experiences that are seen among victims of sexual assault. However, there is no universal reaction; there are just as many differences in the unique response of each victim. Additionally, this module will explore the ways in which this impact will influence the strategies that are most likely to be effective during a law enforcement investigation and criminal prosecution.
