Childhood Maltreatment and Date Rape.
Sanders, Barbara; Moore, Dina L.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v14 n2 p115-24 Feb 1999
Study compares women college students who reported unwanted sexual experiences judged to constitute date rape with controls who reported no rape. Findings suggest that compared to controls, date-rape group had significantly higher scores on measures of overall childhood stress. Concludes that early forms of maltreatment (not specifically sexual) are also associated with increased likelihood of sexual victimization later in life. (Author/JDM)
