Product Description

    Details

    Military Sexual Trauma (MST) is an ongoing problem for service members. This presentation card will help you convey the facts behind MST as well as the steps your audience can take to reduce their risk and prevent it from happening.

    The card starts by explaining that MST refers to sexual assault or harassment that occurs while a service member is in the military. Victims and perpetrators of this crime can be both male and female.

    Military Sexual Trauma causes unique problems for its victims. They may have to continue to live and work with the perpetrator, or even rely on him or her for basic needs. Victims may develop strong feelings of betrayal toward fellow service members. In addition, they may be unwilling to report the incident for fear of retaliation or in order to protect their mission. 

    To reduce the risk of sexual assault, deployed service members should familiarize themselves with new areas and always travel in groups. Reporting unauthorized people or suspicious activities can prevent incidents before they occur. Female service members should be informed about cultural differences in the treatment of women. They should be ready to politely, but firmly, discuss their feelings should they find themselves being treated in a manner that makes them uncomfortable.

    Other tips for reducing the risk of sexual assault include staying with friends and not leaving social gatherings with strangers. Refraining from excess alcohol consumption, avoiding isolated areas, and leaving if one feels uncomfortable can also help with reducing the risk of assault.

    The card includes information on the steps to take if a service member is sexually assaulted. It advises victims to get to a safe place away from the perpetrator and to preserve evidence of the attack. Victims should also write down details of the attack, call 9-1-1 for medical care, and contact a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) to learn about their reporting options.

    Audience members are urged to follow the ABCs of Active Bystander Intervention:

    • Assess the safety of the situation - If intervening may be dangerous, contact the authorities.
    • Be with others - Groups that intervene are more likely to deter a potential perpetrator.
    • Care for the victim - Help the victim get the medical care he/she needs.

    The card concludes with the message Stay Alert - Be Vigilant. Protect Your Fellow Warriors.

    Presentation Cards are the perfect companion piece to the matching presentation display. The smaller size is great for a leave behind piece to reemphasize the important facts and information on the display. As a stand alone piece these cards offer a pocket size infographic on the dangers of tobacco and can easily be distributed at any event.
