Trust in others has been severely damaged so all helping efforts should respect the sexually assaulted person's need for privacy, safety and control. Every effort should be made to protect the victim's name and identifying information throughout the intervention with the victim.
The sexually assaulted person needs to be heard and respected. The person needs to understand options and to move at his or her own pace through the process of recovery. The sexually assaulted person needs to know what services and options are available and who provides them. Similarly, the person needs to know what is outside the scope of any given provider's services.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
