|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5417||Date:||1999||Abstract:||A substantial body of empirical evidence now shows that child sexual abuse has profound effects on the psychological adjustment of children (Kendall-Tackett, Williams & Finkelhor, 1993) and these effects in some instances continue on into adulthood (Beitchman, Zucker, Hood, Da Costa & Akman, 1991). A wide range of factors mediate the impact of abuse on adjustment (Spacarelli, 1994). In this chapter the impact of sexual abuse on children and adults will be addressed with reference to the empirical literature in the field and the implications of this for prevention considered.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children||Copyright (published version):||1999 Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children||Keywords:||Psychological adjustment;Behavioural adjustment;Attachment;Intrapsychic intergration;Dissociation;Physiological functioning||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
