Resources

One of SCAR‘s priorities is providing references and resources to those suffering the aftermath of interpersonal victimization.  A comprehensive list of resources for victims is coming soon.

  1. Suspect you’re in an abusive relationship?  Visit Invicta’s site about the personality disordered.
  2. Curious about Title IX and your rights as a student and victim?
  3. In April 2011, the Obama Administration and the Department of Education issued a communication to institutions of higher education firmly suggesting re-examination and reform of policies regarding sexual misconduct.  This 21-page letter is known as the “Dear Colleague” letter.
  4. Wonderful 2003 article by Dr. Frances E. Kendall, Ph.D.:  How to be an ally if you are a person with privilege.
  5. If you are alone and feel you need counseling on an immediate basis, call RAINN at 1.800.656.4673.  It is free, confidential, and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
