2015 Unacknowledged Rape: The Influences of Child Sexual Abuse and Personality Traits

Unacknowledged rape is the phrase used to describe how most young women who experience sexual victimization that satisfies the legal definition of rape do not label their experiences as such. In a sample of 77 young adult women, less severe histories of child sexual abuse and higher levels of dysfunctional personality traits were associated with considerably higher probabilities of unrecognized rape. Clinical ramifications and potential causes for these findings are examined in this study because of the possible psychological effects and cultural effects of unreported rape.

2015 The lived experiences of mothers whose children were sexually abused by their intimate male partners

Child sexual abuse is a widespread issue that affects many families worldwide and seems to be sharply rising in South Africa.

The study used existential phenomenology, and data were analyzed using Braun and Clarke’s (2006) six-phase thematic analysis. According to the findings, the individuals went through feelings including incredulity, anger, remorse, depression, trust, and blame that are typical of those who have experienced a loss.

The consequences of sexual abuse are far-reaching, affecting not only the victim and abuser, as well as their families and friends, but also the society at large and the professionals who operate in this field.

2007 Adult vicarious victims of child abuse

Having experienced sexual abuse as a child, adults frequently experience sexual issues. These issues, by definition, have an impact on their partners who have been labelled as “vicarious victims” of that violence. This case study shows how both married spouses were victimized vicariously even though neither was the actual victim of abuse, as in the husband’s knowledge of his sister being abused by their father. It also serves as an example of how, when combining cognitive and behavioral therapies, it is crucial to correctly identify the underlying automatic, negative belief.
