Sexual Assault Program

At the Kaw Nation Family Trauma Healing Center, we recognize the individuality of each person and acknowledge the diverse ways in which sexual assault can impact them. During this crucial time, a range of tailored services is readily accessible to cater to the unique needs of each individual.

The term “rape” may seem distant and detached until it touches someone intimately connected to you – be it your significant other, your child, a sibling, a parent, an aunt or uncle, a niece or nephew, a cousin, your best friend, or even yourself. In such instances, it transforms into an enduring reality, a haunting experience that lingers throughout a person’s lifetime.

Consent

Consent Is defined as positive cooperation; it must be freely and voluntarily given, and all participants must have knowledge and understanding of the act. Lack of consent includes but is not limited to, the use of a weapon, physical violence or restraints, verbal threats, intimidation, and threats of retaliation or harm.  Consent cannot be given where force or threat of force, coercion or fraud is used to gain compliance. When someone is incapacitated due to alcohol or other drugs. When someone is asleep or unconscious. When someone is under the legal age of consent.  Remember consent can also be revoked even in the middle of a sex act.
