Abstract:

During the past decade Americans have witnessed an unprecedented interest in crimes against women, from Congressional hearings to several high profile rape cases. The present study investigated the role of social reactions on the post-assault psychological adjustment of 279 sexual assault victims. The study introduces a revised version of the Social Reactions Questionnaire (SRQ; Ullman, 2000). Results indicate that the revised version of the SRQ provides unique information about the impact of positive and negative social reactions on victims' psychological adjustment. The revised version adds to research in this area by providing information about the helpfulness/harmfulness of fourteen social reactions.
