Does Alcohol Mediate the Relationship Between Sexual Victimization and Risk Perception in a Date Rape Vignette
Date of this Version
UCARE Poster Session, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Fall 2016
The present study used a date-rape vignette to examine the relationship between prior victimization, drinking habits (AUDIT score), risk perception. This was part of a larger study that analyzed sexual victimization and aggression. The present study looked at the 913 college-aged women that self-identified as heterosexual and bisexual at 2 mid-western colleges. They completed a battery of surveys that identified relevant history and behaviors. Findings suggest that the problematic drinking variable (AUDIT) mediates the relationship between prior victimization and risk perception.
