Does the relationship with the perpetrator of sexual harassment matter? The impact of sexual harassment experiences on mental wellbeing study

This study is part of a Doctoral dissertation, exploring the impact of experiences of sexual harassment and the relationship with self-blame and help-seeking intentions on subsequent negative outcomes. This research project is under the supervisor of Melanie Douglas.

The aim of our study is to examine how the source of sexual harassment experiences (e.g. from an intimate partner, family, friend etc) can impact mental health, and how cognitive factors effect these outcomes. Previous research has revealed significant mental and physical health consequences following sexual harassment (Black et al., 2011), with self-blame impacting emotional and psychological distress, including negative health outcomes (Filipas & Ullman., 2006). Further, women are more likely to blame the perpetrator of sexual harassment, in comparison to men, predominantly when they were less acquainted with them (Frazier, 2003).
