Barker-Collo, Suzanne L.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v25 n10 p1329-41 Oct 2001
A survey of 126 female survivors of childhood sexual abuse (n=126) found participants reporting abuse by immediate family members and before age 10 tended make internal attributions of blame when they were children. Reports of childhood internal attributions of blame were significantly predictive of overall adult symptomatology and suicide attempts. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
