The Long-Term Sequelae of Child and Adolescent Abuse: A Longitudinal Community Study.
Silverman, Amy B.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n8 p709-23 Aug 1996
A 17-year longitudinal study of 375 individuals found that, at age 21, almost 11% reported physical or sexual abuse before age 18. Compared to nonabused counterparts, abused subjects demonstrated significant impairments in functioning at ages 15 and 21, including more depressive symptomatology, anxiety, psychiatric disorders, emotional-behavioral problems, suicidal ideation, and suicide attempts. Gender differences were also found. (Author/DB)
