Inform Someone
Sexual Violence
Sexual violence can be perpetrated by anyone, to anyone, anywhere.
Sexual violence is most often perpetrated by men but this does not mean victims are always women.
Sexual violence is most often committed by someone known to the survivor.
Sexual violence occurs across all races, ages, socioeconomic statuses, genders, and sexual orientations.
Sexual violence of all kinds are not acts of sexual passion; they are crimes of power, control, entitlement, and degradation.
The Victims
1 in 4 women will be the victim of rape or attempted rape in her lifetime.
1 in 11 American men experienced an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime.
80% of sexual assault and rape victims are under age 30.
About 44% of rape victims are under age 18.
Statistics from RAINN and Bureau of Justice Statistics, US Department of Justice
So how can I support a student who experiences sexual misconduct?
The Timeline
Visit the hospital immediately.
SAFE Centers of Excellence are preferred.
Care performed by a specially trained Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner (SAFE)
Timely, compassionate, patient-centered care
Assurance about the quality of collection, documentation, preservation, and custody of physical evidence
Support by a trained Rape Crisis Advocate or Counselor
Replacement clothing, as needed
Reliable referrals
Medical Options
Medical Exam (treatment and documentation of injuries)
Forensic Exam (evidence collection kit, drug facilitated rape kit)
Prevention Medications (Pregnancy, STIs, HIV)
Forensic Rape Exam

NY State Law mandates that hospitals hold the kit for 30 days (many hold for longer)
Kits are NEVER analyzed if client does not report
If police respond to ER and client wants to report, police may take the kit into custody
Office of Victim Services
provides compensation to innocent victims of crime
provides direct reimbursement for sexual assault forensic exams performed by a hospital
allows a victim to choose NOT to go through their insurance if that information could interfere with personal safety
Safe Horizon can help with the application
Legal Options
Calling the police (ALWAYS the survivor's choice)
Order of Protection (via Family Court)
Why Don't Survivors Report?

(not being believed, people finding out, being arrested, being outed)
Possible cultural/religious rejection
Don't want to get the perpetrator in trouble
Shame and self-blame
Distrust of law enforcement, those in charge
Fear of retaliation
The personal experience of witnessing or experiencing a highly stressful event(s) in which:
The individual is overwhelmed and unable to cope with his/her emotional reaction to the event, or

The individual experiences an intense fear, helplessness, loss of control, or threat to life or bodily integrity.
Common Effects of Trauma
physical effects, injuries, health issues
hyperarousal, exaggerated startle response
guilt, shame, embarassment, self-blame
anger, depression, loss of self-esteem
intrusion of experience - flashbacks, nightmares, intrusive thoughts
impaired thinking - confusion, disorganization
disconnection from others and experiences
Coping with Trauma
everyone responds differently
coping methods become deeply ingrained
coping methods are ways survivors find to protect sense of well-being
negative coping: self-harm, substance abuse, running away, ignoring problems, avoiding trauma triggers, isolation, angry outbursts
positive coping: exercise, writing, prayer, singing, dancing, reading, TV, talking to a friend, crying
How should I react to a disclosure?
Be ready to hold knowledge
Refer and Report
"You are not alone."

"No one should have to live with violence."

"You don't deserve to be treated this way."

"You are not to blame."

"Help is available to you."

What is Title IX?
Responsible Employees CANNOT guarantee full confidentiality or secrecy, but will be as discreet as possible when sharing information with others.

Information provided to a Responsible Employee may be disclosed to appropriate College officials who have an “essential need to know” in order to carry out their College responsibilities.
What is my role?
Initial Conference
Appeal Process (if needed)

1. Sexual Harassment. Unwelcome, gender-based verbal, non-verbal, or physical conduct that is sexual in nature and sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with, denies, or limits someone’s ability to participate in or benefit from the College’s educational programs and/or activities, and is based on power differentials, the creation of a hostile environment, or retaliation.

2. Sexual Violence. Physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or perpetrated where a person is incapable of giving consent.
a. Sexual Assault. A physical sexual act or acts committed against another person without consent. Sexual assault includes what is
commonly known as “rape” (including what is commonly called “date rape” and “acquaintance rape”), fondling, statutory rape
and incest. Rape is defined as actual or attempted penetration accomplished by threats, coercion, or physical force. It includes
nonconsensual vaginal, anal, or oral penetration by penis, finger, or any object.
b. Domestic Violence. Includes, but is not limited to acts constituting disorderly conduct, harassment, aggravated harassment,
sexual misconduct, forcible touching, sexual abuse, stalking, criminal mischief, menacing, reckless endangerment, kidnapping,
assault, attempted murder, criminal obstruction or breaching or blood circulation, or strangulation; and such acts have created a
substantial risk of physical or emotional harm to a person or a person’s child. Such acts are alleged to have been committed by a
family member.
c. Dating Violence. Dating violence is violence that occurs between people who know each other: boyfriends and girlfriends or same
sex partners whether or not they live together. The violence may be physical, but it can also include threats, enforced social
isolation and/or humiliation, intimidation, harassment, emotional mistreatment, financial control, forced sex or making threats
with regard to family, friends, and/or children.

3. Stalking. Stalking is defined as non-consensual communication with, and/or harassment of another person. It is the willful, malicious and repeated harassing or threatening of another person which, as a pattern, tends to escalate in both intensity and frequency over time and can last for many years. The behaviors may include, but are not limited to: repeated following, repeated telephone calls and hang-ups; letters; unwanted gifts and packages; spreading harmful gossip about victims; breaking-and-entering that can include vandalism, theft, or even simply rearranging objects so that victims know the stalker was there.

A knowing, voluntary, and mutual decision among all participants to engage in sexual activity.

Consent can be given by words or actions, as long as those words or actions create clear permission regarding willingness to engage in the sexual activity.

Silence or lack of resistance, in and of itself, does not demonstrate consent.

The definition of consent does not vary based upon a participant’s sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Consent to any sexual act or prior sexual activity between or with any party does not necessarily constitute consent to any other sexual act.

Consent is required regardless of whether the person initiating the act is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

Consent may be initially given but withdrawn at any time. When consent is withdrawn or can no longer be given, sexual activity must stop.
But how do you know when someone is incapacitated?
lacks the ability to knowingly choose to participate in sexual activity

may be caused by the lack of consciousness or being asleep, being involuntarily restrained, or if an individual otherwise cannot consent

depending on the degree of intoxication, someone who is under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other intoxicants MAY be incapacitated and therefore unable to consent
