Healthy Recovery After Trauma Study

Do you have a history of unwanted sexual experiences?

  • Have you ever experienced a rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse, or sexual activity while you were unable to consent due to the influence of alcohol or drugs?

  • Do you have unwanted memories, nightmares, or avoid situations that remind you of what happened? 

  • Do you blame yourself or feel physically or emotionally different since the experience?

If so, researchers at the University of Kentucky would like to invite you to participate in a treatment study. Researchers at the UK Clinic for Emotional Health are evaluating two psychological treatments for participants with a history of unwanted sexual experiences. All information is kept strictly confidential. You will receive up to 18 sessions of individual psychological treatment at no cost. Both in-person and telehealth appointments are available. This study does not involve any medication. 

You may be eligible to participate if you: 

  • Are 18 years or older 
  • Have a history of unwanted sexual experiences 
  • Are still impacted by what happened  
  • Identify as any gender (e.g., male, female, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary)

Due to state laws governing psychological services, this study is available to Kentucky Residents only
