Sexual Abuse and Body Image Distortion.
Byram, Victoria; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n4 p507-10 Apr 1995
Female undergraduates (n=100) were surveyed concerning body percept and past experience with sexual abuse. Body size overestimation was greater in noneating-disordered women who had relatively unhealthy eating attitudes. Overall findings suggested that age at time of abuse and body image are only associated where there is a degree of eating psychopathology. (PB)
