Chance To Help Improve Treatment For Survivors

You could win $100 for completion of a Columbia University survey about childhood sexual abuse.

If you were sexually assaulted, abused, and/or raped before you became 18, then you are invited to participate in an online survey that investigates the benefits and costs of talking to a therapist about the sexual abuse you experienced in childhood. This information will be used to help clinicians be more effective in treating survivors of sexual abuse, as it will allow them to better understand the experience of survivors.

This research is being conducted at Teachers College, Columbia University. All responses will be anonymous. The survey takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. Upon completion, you will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win $100.

Eligibility Criteria:

· Must be 18 years of age or older

· Must be female

· Must have experienced at least one incident of sexual abuse in childhood

· Must currently be in therapy or have been in therapy at some point in the past

If you meet the above criteria, please complete this survey by logging onto:, enter “129928” in the “Go to survey #” box, and enter the password “Disclosure.”

If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Feldman at

*This project, #09-202, has been approved by the Teachers College, Columbia University Institutional Review Board*
