Adjustment following Sexual Abuse Discovery: The Role of Shame and Attributional Style.
Feiring, Candice; Taska, Lynn; Lewis, Michael
Developmental Psychology, v38 n1 p79-92 Jan 2002
Examined impact of shame and attributional style on adjustment following sexual abuse. Found that once adjustment at discovery was accounted for, shame and attribution style explained additional variation in adjustment 1 year later; abuse severity did not. Relations between abuse severity and subsequent depressive symptoms and self-esteem were significant only at high levels of pessimistic attribution style. (Author/KB)
