ABSTRACT Female college students reporting a history of childhood sexual abuse (N = 175) and not reporting a history of childhood sexual abuse (N = 266) were compared on indices of six self-destructive behaviors, including drug use, alcohol abuse, binge eating, self-mutilation, risky sex, and suicidality. The samples were also compared on two measures of dissociation, the Trauma Symptom Checklist dissociation subscale and the Dissociative Experiences Scale. The CSA group had significantly… Expand

TLDR
The purpose of the following pilot study was to examine the relationship between childhood sexual abuse and the “lack of familiarity with one’s own body,” a facet of dissociation. Expand
Comparing Dissociation and PTSD in Sexually Abused School-Aged Girls
TLDR
Results from bivariate analyses show that the two symptom constellations represent distinct constructs, and that intrafamilial abuse and chronicity do not predict PTSD, however, abuse involving intrusive acts (penetration) does predict PTSD symptoms. Expand
Childhood sexual abuse and non-suicidal self-injury: meta-analysis
TLDR
Theories that childhood sexual abuse has a central or causal role in the development of self-injurious behaviour are not supported by the available empirical evidence and it appears that the two are modestly related because they are correlated with the same psychiatric risk factors. Expand
Child Sexual Abuse, Dissociation, and Alcohol: Implications of Chemical Dissociation via Blackouts Among College Women

TLDR
Results from multiple hierarchical regressions pointed to dissociative symptoms as the key predictor of parental practices and attitudes, which mediated the association between childhood maltreatment and inconsistency in applying discipline. Expand
Childhood sexual abuse, sexual motives, and adolescent sexual risk-taking among males and females receiving child welfare services.

High Betrayal Adolescent Sexual Abuse and Nonsuicidal Self-Injury: The Role of Depersonalization in Emerging Adults
TLDR

Effects of Adolescent Trauma Exposure on Risky Behavior in College Women
TLDR
Risky sexual behavior, suicidal ideation, and elevated perpetration of violence were most prominent among those with ongoing abuse exposure, although a single exposure to interpersonal violence during adolescence was sufficient for some risky behaviors. Expand
The mediator roles of trait anxiety, hostility, and impulsivity in the association between childhood trauma and dissociation in male substance-dependent inpatients.
TLDR
To reduce the risk of dissociation and related behavior such as suicide attempt and self-mutilation among substance dependents, chronic anxiety together with the feelings of hostility and impulsivity must be the targets of evaluation and treatment among those with history of childhood trauma. Expand
Self-mutilation among male patients with alcohol dependency: the role of dissociation.
TLDR
The overall severity of clinical condition and the frequency of suicide attempts among those who reported SM were higher than those of the remaining patients and the Dissociative Experiences Scale-Taxon item "auditory verbal hallucinations" and the Symptom Checklist-Revised dimension "hostility" were predictors of SM.
