Online Survey: Sexual Coercion

Below is an announcement about a research project and online survey in need of Asian American respondents.

Participants Needed for Study on Sexual Coercion

My name is Krista Hansen and I am a currently enrolled in Florida Institute of Technology’s Psy.D graduate program. I am working on my Doctoral Research Project and am conducting a study in which I am replicating the construction of a new research tool designed to measure sexual coercion. Currently there is no research instrument which solely addresses sexual coercion, perhaps because of the unique and subtle nature of this specific type of sexual experience. I am specifically interested in determining the generalizability of this new measure across Asian American subjects.

It is hoped that through this research this new measure can be validated furthering the research devoted to this area. I am specifically aiming my study towards Asian American participants because of the unique protective and risk factors found within this collectivistic culture. I am hoping that my research can later lead to the implementation of specific interventions aimed to increase protective factors and decrease risk factors of sexual coercion which could hopefully lead to reduced rates of sexual coercion within the Asian American population and worldwide.

I am hoping that your organization will help me in my research, specifically by making the survey link available to your members who are above the age of 18 and who self identify as Asian American. If you fit this criteria and are interested in helping my research please visit my survey site,

This survey will not take long to complete and the information gathered will hopefully lead to advancements in our understanding of sexual coercion and could perhaps someday lead to interventions that could reduce rates of sexual coercion worldwide. Your confidentiality and safety is of utmost concern and any information obtained through this survey that could identify you will be kept strictly confidential. My study has been approved by my schools Institutional Review Board and my IRB number is 10-022.

Thank you in advance!

Krista Hansen, M.S.
