Tine Bennedsen Gehrt has received a grant from the Danish Victims Fund

Postdoc Tine Bennedsen Gehrt has received 1,278,290 DKK to the project: Autobiographical memory and self-concept in victims of sexual assault.

Sexual assault has serious consequences for individual’s mental health. Yet, there is very limited knowledge about how sexual assault affects the victim’s memory and self-concept, despite the memory of the sexual assault often being key for the victim, in the following psychological treatment, as well as at the police and in court. A new project will investigate how sexual assault affects victim’s memory in Danish victims of sexual assault.
The project is carried out in collaboration with the Center for Victims of Sexual Assault at Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark, and has received financial support from the Danish Victims Fund.
