Jessica Eaton delivers this unique workshop based on up to date of psychological research and many years of front line practice, and will explore the ways in which women and girls are blamed for sexual violence - and the ways they blame themselves.

We will look at the prevalence of victim blaming of women and the findings from her new study which surveyed the general population about how much they would blame women for sexual violence committed against them.
