Questionnaire 5


Questionnaire 5: Sexualized Harms Inflicted by "Others"

The following questions are for persons who have suffered non-State torture, including ritual abuse-torture. If you sought help from various service providers such as counsellors, doctors, social workers, nurses, clergy, police or legal professionals and have suffered sexualized victimization by these providers, please consider answering these questions. Please remember that if you have suffered such a violation(s) it is the person who harmed you who is responsible for the acts of violence they decided to commit against you as a person who they knew was potentially vulnerable. Your answers will help us to expose the various violating and traumatic incidents that so-called service providers or ‘helpers’ inflict.

People frequently ask how they can help. Completing any of the questionnaires in this section helps our research and writing to break the silence on non-State torture that perpetrators inflict in the private or domestic sphere.
