Child Sexual Assault as a Risk Factor for Mental Disorders among Women: A Community Survey.
Saunders, Benjamin E.; And Others
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v7 n2 p189-204 Jun 1992
Screened 391 women for a history of sexual assault during childhood and then assessed subjects for mental disorders. Results indicate that rape and molestation, but not noncontact sexual assault, increased incidents of mental disorders, suggesting that physical sexual contact leads to severe mental health effects. Other findings are discussed. (RJM)
