Katherine Péloquin is a member of the Interdisciplinary Research Centre on Intimate Relationship Problems and Sexual Abuse (CRIPCAS). This consortium of Quebec researchers aims to better understand the consequences of sexual abuse, and intimate relationship problems on psychological well-being of Québécois. Our work has shown that the consequences of these problems can significantly affect different spheres of life, although many individuals do not report long-term sequelae. Different individual and interpersonal factors could explain these differences among individuals. The CRIPCAS then hopes to identify and to better understand these factors.
This study focuses on the experience of Quebec adults in regards to their personal and couple history, as well as to their psychological and physical well-being. It aims to dress a detailed portrait of Quebec’s population, and to compare individuals that report a history of sexual abuse and/or intimate relationship problems with individuals that do not report such experiences.
