Baral, Isin; Kora, Kaan; Yuksel, Sahika; Sezgin, Ufuk
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v13 n4 p427-37 Aug 1998
Self-mutilating behavior (SMB), suicide, and eating disorders are examined in adult females (N=42) in relation to childhood sexual abuse. A statistically significant relationship was found between SMB and suicide attempts. Findings support the contention that SMB and sexual abuse are closely related to eating disorders. (Author/EMK)
