Guelzow, Jennifer W.; Cornett, Patricia F.; Dougherty, Thomas M.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v11 n4 p53-72 2002
Examines the difference between childhood sexual abuse (CSA) victims and non-victims on measures of perceived social support, coping strategies, and global self-worth. Victims were more likely to report lower maternal support than non-victims of CSA. Results indicate that paternal support and coping strategies may be important for later psychological adjustment in victims of CSA. (Contains 59 references, 3 tables, and 3 figures.) (GCP)
