Abstract:

This report presents findings from the 2015 Focus Groups on Sexual Assault Prevention and Response 2015 FGSAPR study, which collected qualitative feedback from military members through focus groups using trained moderators to facilitate discussion on these topics. The 2015 FGSAPR was generated in response to ongoing National Defense Authorization Act NDAA requirements and guidance from a Secretary of Defense Directive Secretary of Defense, 2014. The Defense Research, Surveys, and Statistics Center RSSC within the Defense Manpower Data Center DMDC was tasked with this effort. The goal of the 2015 FGSAPR effort was to engage in small group discussions with military members across the Department of Defense DoD on issues related to sexual assault. These structured discussions were designed to better understand how recent changes in sexual assault policies and programs have impacted military members and their workplace environment, as well as, address the militarys climate of sexual assault response and prevention.
