Author:Briana Hoffman

Subject:Doctoral Research Project

Hi everyone! I just wanted to remind you of the research project I am doing and ask you to take a look at the information below if you have not done so already. Please disregard if you have already read it and/or do not see adult female clients who experienced childhood sexual abuse. Please email me at bhoffman2008@my.fit.edu if you have any questions. Thank you for your time! Briana Hoffman My name is Briana Hoffman and I am conducting research as a student in the Clinical Psychology doctoral program at Florida Institute of Technology alongside Felipa T. Chavez, Ph.D. I am investigating the effects of childhood sexual abuse and caregiver support on the individual’s feelings regarding the abuse and her overall well-being. I am contacting you to request your assistance in recruitment. I understand that you may provide therapy services for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I would like to ask you to share the following link (http://sexualabuse.questionpro.com ) with any female clients whom you feel could handle the personal and sensitive nature of questions regarding sexual abuse experiences and their feelings about such experiences. If you work for a university or agency that requires additional approval, please contact me with the necessary contact information so that I may begin the process to secure approval from your agency. Participants may find therapeutic value in considering their abuse experiences and other aspects of their lives. Participants will not be subjected to any physical pain or risk, but because some of the interview questions seek to solicit some personal information, no identifying information such as the participant’s name will be asked. Due to the personal and traumatic content of some of the questions, it is necessary that the participants be currently attending therapy for childhood sexual abuse and be able to contact you within 24 hours in the event of any negative reactions to the survey. Initially, participants will be asked to complete a series of questions regarding their childhood sexual abuse history. They will then be prompted to a series of surveys regarding the support provided by their primary non-offending caregiver, their views related to their abuse, and their overall well-being. These surveys will take approximately 20 to 40 minutes to complete. Upon completion of the survey, participants may elect to enter a raffle for a $50 Amazon gift-card. Thank you very much for your time! If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, Felipa Chavez, Ph.D., or the chair of Florida Institute of Technology’s Institutional Review Board, Lisa Steelman.
