    Special Issue on Psychological Dynamics of Sexual Assault


    Sexual Assault and rape have become recognized as crucial social and scientific issues over the past two decades. The consequences of a sexual assault may be manifested biologically, psychologically, and sociologically. By gaining a better appreciation of the repercussions of sexual assault, a holistic and individualized therapy can be developed to ameliorate the physical and emotional pain following the trauma. The issues facing individuals who have experienced sexual assault will be discussed and improvements in current treatments will be suggested, with hopes to develop more effective and holistic therapies in the future.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring psychological dynamics of sexual assault. The topics to be covered by this special issue include, but are not limited to:


    • Public concern of sexual assault
    • Civil lawsuits about sexual assault
    • Victims of sexual abuse
    • The risk and protective factors
    • The effects of sexual abuse
    • Sexual Assault Treatment: Therapy for Trauma Healing
    • Recovery from sexual assault
