A Meta-analysis of the Relationship of Child Sexual Abuse to Adult Psychological Adjustment.
Jumper, Shan A.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n6 p715-28 Jun 1995
This meta-analysis found significant relationships between the experience of child sexual abuse and subsequent difficulties in psychological adjustment as measured by psychological symptomatology, depression, and self-esteem. Significant heterogeneity occurred across studies using different subject populations. Student samples consistently generated smaller, more homogeneous effect size estimates than did community or clinical samples. (Author/DB)
