Female college students (N=475) completed measures of sexual and physical abuse before and after age 15 and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms. Of the group, 27 had been sexually abused, 53 physically abused, and 31 both physically and sexually abused. Conclusions stress the importance of separating physical and combined forms of victimization from sexual abuse alone. (Author/DB)
