TOWARD THE FUTURE
|1.||What are the immediate and chronic effects of rape in the context of the victim's place in the life cycle, and what are the treatment implications?|
|2.||What is the long-term impact of rape with regard to developmental aspects of sexual and aggressive drives?|
|3.||What is the frequency of a prior rape among women who are currently psychiatric patients? Numerical and descriptive data may serve in part to clarify the first and second questions.|
|4.||Can we identify and describe a sample of victims who do not come to public attention? All available information about victims is necessarily gleaned from a sample population which reports to either hospital or law enforcement. A survey of private physicians may provide information about a silent subgroup which may differ from the group who reports.|
|5.||What is the impact of rape by a stranger as compared with rape by an assailant known to the victim?|
