Seminar Series - RaeAnn Anderson


1:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Kali Patterson , (402) 472-5975,
Join us for our April Seminar Series event featuring a presentation by RaeAnn Anderson, PhD on “Alcohol-Facilitated Sexual Victimization Among Indigenous College Students.”

Anderson will overview the Self-Defense for Indigenous Peoples Study: Sovereignty for Your Body which surveyed 358 Indigenous college students across North America (15.9% men, 7.3% two-spirit) about their experiences of sexual victimization and their preferences for interventions. Most students attended a tribal college at the time of the study. Only 17.88% of the sample did not report an experience of sexual victimization. In fact, 67.3% of the sample reported developmental revictimization (experiencing childhood sexual abuse and sexual victimization in adolescence or adulthood). Nearly half had participated in some type of sexual victimization reduction program (48.6%). The talk will further explore the relationship between alcohol-facilitated violence and preferences for intervention components as well as preferences for substance use interventions.

Dr. Anderson completed her bachelor’s at the University of Kansas, her PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2015 and her postdoctoral training at Kent State University. She is currently an Assistant Professor in Clinical Psychology at the University of North Dakota. Her research interests include methodological issues in sexual violence research, basic behavioral processes in sexual victimization and sexual perpetration in order to inform sexual assault risk reduction and prevention programs, respectively.
