Rape Avoidance: a somewhat different form of sexuality education

Dr Marika Guggisberg

The research revealed that victims experience disbelief, stigmatisation and blame. This continues to exacerbate victims’ impacts on mental health and result in self-blame for having become a victim of sexual assault. In response, a number of prevention programs are offered, including for students enrolled at Curtin University in the sexology postgraduate program. The Unit “Introduction into Forensic Sexology” not only examines sexual violence from a victim and perpetrator perspective, but also focuses on increasing students’ knowledge, changing attitudes with challenging rape myths, and discusses rape-supportive community attitudes. In addition, along with empirical evidence, students are taught rape resistance strategies.
