#9111 Many victims of sexual assault and harassment in the military are reluctant to press charges because of fear of retaliation, damage to their careers, and widespread uncertainty regarding the military justice system. However, when circumstances arise, several resources are available to assist victims and families in their efforts to report, seek help, and recover from the effects of sexual assault.
Yet, finding those resources can be challenging, especially in a time of crisis. Sexual Assault in the Military serves as an easy-to-use, comprehensive reference guide for military members and their families about sexual assault and harassment. While more and more attention has been focused on getting victims to report their abuse, accessing information can still be difficult for servicemembers.
Understanding that the military is making changes, and offering support is a necessary step toward addressing these cases and how to get help and justice for the victims. Cheryl Lawhorne-Scott and Don Philpott discuss the current state of affairs, the systems in place, and the supports available to victims and families.
The book also provides documents that outline how reporting can and should take place, how cases should be handled through the military justice system, and how and where victims can access resources, including counseling.
