Prevention of Post Sexual Assault Stress
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a brief intervention in video format, that includes education about reactions to assault and modeling of adaptive coping strategies, designed to reduce post assault drug use or abuse and PTSD and shown to recent victims of sexual assault at the time of receipt of post assault medical care is associated with better post-assault outcomes as compared to a comparable length video that includes pleasant imagery and relaxation instruction or standard care.
