Coffey, Patricia; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n5 p447-55 May 1996
This study tested 192 women who had been sexually abused as children, to see if perceived stigma, betrayal, powerlessness, and self-blame mediated long-term effects of child sexual abuse. Levels of psychological distress experienced by adult survivors of abuse were found to be mediated by feelings of stigma and self-blame. (Author/PB)
