Perrott, Katherine; Morris, Eleanor; Martin, Judy; Romans, Sarah
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v22 n11 p1135-49 Nov 1998
Analysis of the coping strategies of 40 adult women who had been sexually abused in childhood found that overall, abuse characteristics did not predict outcome. However, women who "deliberately suppressed" the abuse incidents were more likely to have low self-esteem and women who "reframed" the sexual abuse event were significantly less likely to have a psychiatric diagnosis.
