Sexual and Physical Revictimization among Victims of Severe Childhood Sexual Abuse
Barnes, Jaclyn E.; Noll, Jennie G.; Putnam, Frank W.; Trickett, Penelope K.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v33 n7 p412-420 Jul 2009
Objective: This 15-year prospective, longitudinal study examines adolescent and young-adult female self-reports of traumatic sexual and physical experiences occurring subsequent to substantiated childhood sexual abuse-revictimizations (N=89). Method: These incidences were contrasted to sexual and physical victimizations reported by a group of non-abused comparison females (N=90). Results: Abused females were almost twice as likely to have experienced sexual revictimization (odds=1.99 [plus or minus] 2.79, p less than 0.05), and physical revictimization (odds=1.96 [plus or minus] 2.58, p less than 0.05) as compared to victimization rates reported by comparison females. Abused females' revictimizations were also more likely to have been perpetrated by older, non-peers and characterized by physical injury than were victimizations reported by comparison females. Conclusion: Early childhood sexual abuse may provide information regarding the level of risk for recurrent sexual and physical victimization. (Contains 2 tables.)
