New Frontiers in Forensic Psychology: Tackling Sexual Violence at Universities

 

"This is the only book to offer an international perspective on the incidence, reporting and impact of sexual violence at universities. Drawing on evidence from the UK, North America and Australia, it situates sexual violence in universities within a broader societal context, and argues that university communities are uniquely well placed to prevent sexual violence, as well as support those who report it.

Beschrijving New Frontiers in Forensic Psychology: Tackling Sexual Violence at Universities

Sexual violence is a problem well beyond universities, however universities are uniquely well placed to contribute to reducing sexual violence, encouraging those affected to come forward and speak about their experiences and actively encourage increased reporting. This book is unique, in that it offers an international perspective on the incidence, reporting and impact of sexual violence at universities.


Drawing on evidence from the UK, North America, Australia and Europe, Towl and Walker explore the psychological and structural challenges to reporting sexual violence. They provide a set of policy and practice guidance recommendations that move beyond awareness campaigns to call for systems to be put in place whereby reports of sexual assault are handled promptly, fairly and consistently. They also discuss how universities can strengthen their approach to prevention, promoting safeguarding and the welfare of victims and survivors, and involving victims and survivors in the development and improvement of services. However, fundamental to their approach is keeping decision making with the victim and survivor, and emphasising that their health and recovery is paramount.


Tackling Sexual Violence at Universities is an invaluable and ground-breaking resource for students and researchers in forensic psychology and criminology, as well as professionals working in higher education.
