Due to the ever-rising number of sexual assault and abuse cases reported in the media, reports of sexual trauma in the public are also on the rise. Historically, research has shown that one in five women and one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives, with one in three women and one in six men experiencing some form of unwanted sexual contact. Eighty one percent of women and 35% of men report both short- and long-term impacts such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and a variety of other disorders, both emotional and physical.  With respect to healthcare, women who were sexually abused as children have 16% higher use of services, while utilization is 36% higher for women who were both physically and sexually abused as children.

This one-day workshop is designed for healthcare professionals of all professions— medical, psychological, allied health, and even administrators who need a comprehensive understanding of the “whole health” impact of sexual trauma on patient healthcare.  Physical health is only one aspect of the constellation of health components that is affected, but others—psychological, social, interpersonal, intellectual/occupational, environmental, financial, sexual, spiritual, and recreational aspects must also be considered when treating patients effectively. As further sexual trauma cases are disclosed, healthcare providers need a comprehensive model of care that covers all aspects “whole person” sexual health.
