Childhood Sexual Abuse: A Gender Perspective on Context and Consequences
TLDR
Overall, men and women were similar in the context and consequences of CSA, but number of incidents of sexual abuse, injury at the hands of a caregiver, and exposure to other traumas significantly explained higher levels of an array of mental health symptoms.
