Abstract

This paper is a report on the condition of rape myth acceptance and rape supportive attitudes among adolescent boys and girls. Students in secondary schools are at high risk for becoming victims of not only sexual violence, but also of secondary victimization at the reaction of peers and professionals. The paper discusses common risk factors for rape myth acceptance, along with suggestions for counselors practicing in a secondary school setting.
