Feiring, Candice; Lewis, Michael; Taska, Lynn
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v23 n2 p115-28 Feb 1999
Interviews with 96 children and 73 adolescents following sexual abuse found significant age and sex differences. Adolescents reported a higher level of depressive symptoms, negative reactions by others, and lower levels of self-esteem, social support, and sexual anxiety. Girls reported higher levels of intrusive thoughts, hyperarousal, sexual anxiety, and personal vulnerability. (Author/DB)
