dc.description.abstractIndividuals who have been sexually assaulted live with the financial, physical, psychological, and social costs of victimization long after the assault happens. This study utilizes a snowball sample to explore and detail the lived experiences of three (n=3) individuals who have experienced the phenomena of sexual victimization, disclosure and navigating the judicial system, through participant self-narrations from a first person lived experience perspective using survivor-centric language. The powerful and transformative qualitative research method of interpretive phenomenology was used to develop a deeper understanding that these costs affect all areas of a survivor’s life and endure indefinitely. Humanizing the phenomena and bringing the humane into the process has the potential to shift societal beliefs and attitudes that sexual assault is not a personal problem, rather a societal phenomenon of systemic oppression perpetuated against individuals, which are felt personally, but happen throughout multiple systems including the judicial, educational, and religious and cultural.
