Bystander Intervention Education Sexual Assault Definitions Resources United States law includes two types of sexual assault: sexual abuse and aggravated sexual abuse.

Sexual abuse include acts in which an individual is forced to engage in sexual activity by use of threats, fear tactics, or instances in which an individual is physically unable to decline.

Aggravated sexual abuse occurs when an individual is forced to submit to sexual acts by use of physical force. threats of death, injury or kidnapping, of use of substances that render the individual unconscious or impaired. 1. Be aware of comments and behaviors from others that would indicate they were intent on having sexual intercourse even if the partner was unwilling. Action Steps Believe the person. What if it happens to someone I know? You must have consent to engage in any and all sexual behaviors. Consent is hearing that word "yes." It is not the absence of hearing "no." Did you know?

Don't pressure of encourage friends to drink or have sex as often or with as many people as possible. 4. Don't joke about sexual assault: comments and jokes that are meant to "ease the tension" or are "just kidding around" can trivialize the severity of the behavior. 5. Know your level of comfort with conversations and talk about sexual behavior. If you find groups or individuals who talk about sexual in a way that is not respectful, don't be afraid to say something. Tell the victim it is not their fault. Encourage a report (to campus or local police, to the dean of students, to the campus health clinic, counseling services, etc), but realize that there may be reasons NOT to report. Respect their decision. Don't pry or try to get information out of the person if he/she is unwilling. But be ready to listen when the person does open up. Be patient. Listen Know available resources. Up to 75% of the physical and sexual assaults that occur on college campuses involve the abuse of alcohol by assailants, victims or both. Less than 2% of reports to police are considered false rape. More than 90% of sexual assaults re committed by people the victim knows. UCR, 2010 GC Counseling Services
