Volunteers Needed for Research Study

Researchers at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing with the permission of the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center are conducting a study to learn more about survivors’ relationships following a sexual assault.

You may take part in this research study if you:

  • Have experienced unwanted sexual contact
  • Have been forced to participate in sexual activities without your consent or against your will

You may not take part in this research study if you:

  • Are under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the interview
  • Are experiencing psychotic or manic symptoms which would interfere with your being able to focus on the interview
  • Are currently experiencing an acute crisis which would prohibit you from being able to focus on the interview
  • Are currently seen by the researcher for care (to be determined during initial phone contact)

What will be asked to do?

  • Talk with the female researcher to learn more about the study so you can make an informed decision
  • Be willing to talk about your personal relationships after the sexual assault occurred
  • Participate in an interview of about 60-90 minutes (the researcher may contact you for clarification if needed)
  • Review a summary of the findings from everyone who participated to ensure your experience is accurately represented

You will be compensated for participation in this study.

If you are interested in learning more about this study or if you have questions, please contact the researcher at 440-382-8636
