Abstract

'Sexual assault in the United States is a 'prevalent and complicated problem. Many different researchers have attempted to design prevention programs aimed at reducing the prevalence of sexual assault. However, little empirical research has been conducted to determine the effectiveness of these programs. Studies on sexual assault prevention program studies published between 1990 and 2005 were reviewed. Information is provided on the gender of program participants, prevention methods, assessment measures, and study designs. Conclusions and suggestions for future research are also;, included.
