Meeting the medical, psychological and social impact of rape and sexual assault: a biopsychosocial framework to promote long-term wellbeing

Sexual violence is a systemic problem. Its causes and consequences challenge us to think about bodies and psychology at the individual and social levels. Professionals working in health, social care, education and other diverse settings are receiving increasing numbers of disclosures – and frequently feel ill-equipped to offer an adequate response. 

This one day conference will explore how a biopsychosocial framework can help professionals and agencies to offer a joined up response that attends to the medical, psychological and social impact of rape and sexual assault. This approach can ensure that we, individually, as agencies and as a society make it possible for people to speak when they have been abused and then offer a response that meets individual needs and promotes long-term wellbeing.
