Équipe Violence Sexuelle et Santé (ÉVISSA)

logo-evissaCreated in April 2007, the ÉVISSA team is an interdisciplinary group
of researchers with specific and complementary expertise.
They share common goals, such as achieving a comprehensive
understanding of sexual violence and its consequences, more specifically by exploring the influence of individual, family and social factor in different life contexts (family, childhood, first relationships and adult couple) and in addition, identifying the intervention and prevention target. The ÉVISSA team is funded by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et Culture (FRQSC).

The research activities are structured around three axes and objectives:

  • Axis I - Disclosure and diversity of medical, social and legal pathways

    Identify the pathways of child, adolescent and adult victims of violence through the different steps following disclosure of a situation of sexual violence (police investigation, legal action, seeking help and support from specialized intervention centers) in order to improve investigative practices, identify barriers to help-seeking and support for victims of violence. This axis also aims to better describe the factors promoting disclosure of a situation of sexual violence, especially in vulnerable populations.
  • Axis II - Analysis of determinants, mechanisms and profiles

    Analyze the determinants and explanatory mechanisms associated with the consequences of sexual violence, and better understand different profiles of victims of sexual violence in terms of life experiences, needs and repercussions according the developmental stage.
  • Axis III - Evaluation of intervention and prevention practices

    Evaluate the effets of interventions for child, youth and adult victims of sexual violence and evaluate emerging prevention practices to support the development of programs for vulnerable population such as preschool children, adolescents, and men who are less likely to use psychosocial and specialized services.
