Resilience Factors Associated with Female Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse.
Valentine, LaNae; Feinauer, Leslie L.
American Journal of Family Therapy, v21 n3 p216-24 Fall 1993
Interviewed 22 women who were survivors of childhood sexual abuse, yet who were able to have relationships, stable careers, and healthy personalities. Interviews revealed resiliency themes of ability to find emotional support outside the family; self-regard or ability to think well of oneself; spirituality; external attribution of blame and cognitive style; and inner-directed locus of control.
