Childhood Sexual Abuse and Female Spiritual Development.
Reinert, Duane F.; Smith, Caroline E.
Counseling and Values, v41 n3 p235-45 Apr 1997
Spiritual development in religiously involved lay women was studied. Differences were found between those who had or had not experienced sexual abuse in childhood, suggesting that the sexually abused may turn to their faith and spirituality for support. Additional findings and implications for spiritual development and counseling are discussed. (Author/EMK)
