The ultimate goal of sexual assault research is to inform effective prevention aimed at reducing rates of sexual assault. Researchers at Kinsey use their research to guide prevention efforts by creating and evaluating their own interventions and writing scholarship aimed at guiding others’ intervention approaches.
