Especially for Victim Advocates

This website is designed for multidisciplinary team members who are caring for victims of sexual assault. Although all areas of the site are accessible, there are certain areas of the site that may have more appeal to specific disciplines.  The sections and topics listed below may be helpful for victim advocates, who are serving victims of sexual assault.


SAFE National Protocols

The National Protocol for Sexual Assault Forensic Examinations of Adults and Adolescents and the National Protocol for Sexual Assault Forensic Examinations - Pediatric were created to address the coordinated community response to sexual assault.  However, they are specifically written to be useful for communities developing a victim sensitive response to sexual assault.  In the Protocols, roles of responders are addressed, along with guidelines for suggested practice.
