Gold, Erica R.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v54 n4 p471-75 Aug 1986
Explored the relation between childhood sexual victimization experience and adult functioning. Victimized women differed from nonvictims on: (a) childhood family and social experiences; (b) adult attributional style; and (c) level of depression, psychological distress, self-esteem, and sexual problems. Suggests that the sexually victimized women's adult functioning was related most strongly to their attributional style for bad events. (Author/ABB)
