Quality of Life in Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse Who Have Undergone Therapy.
Lev-Wiesel, Rachel
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v9 n1 p1-13 2000
Examines perception of past sexual abuse experiences and quality of life among adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Interviews (N=52) reveal three types of explanations for the offenders' behavior. Results indicate that survivors who attributed the abuse to the offenders' characteristics managed to keep their self esteem fairly intact and had a higher quality of life. (Contains 30 references and 2 tables.) (Author/GCP)
