Einbender, Alison J.; Friedrich, William N.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v57 n1 p155-57 Feb 1989
Compared psychological functioning and behavior of 46 sexually abused girls (ages 6-14) with that of 46 nonabused girls matched on age, race, family income, and family constellation. Found that sexually abused children demonstrated heightened sexual preoccupation and behavior problems, lower cognitive abilities and school achievement, and more stressful past histories.
