Sexual Revictimization and PTSD: An Exploratory Study.
Arata, Catalina M.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v8 n1 p49-65 1999
This study examines the relationship between adult/adolescent sexual revictimization and the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in women with histories of child sexual abuse (N=41). Results show that women with repeated victimization were significantly more likely to have a lifetime diagnosis of PTSD, and the majority of repeated victims reported an onset of symptoms in childhood.
