The prevalence of sexual assault in Nigeria is alarming. This paper highlighted the meaning of sexual assault in the society. It reviewed the literature on the stigmatization associated with sexual assault as well as cultural differences on the subject. It also explained the development of some logotherapeutic strategies such as a three step model on counseling, therapy for the victims of such assault, the Frankl mountain range and other useful techniques. The paper concluded with the conviction that Health Care Providers would find those strategies as effective interventions for victims of sexual assault in Nigeria and elsewhere.
