Intervening case studies show sexual abuse is not a minor concern
Survivors of sexual abuse often parent children who are traumatized by the abuse. Sadly, survivors may have difficulty controlling impulses that are discharged via sex or overly eager to play rapist. A review published in the journal International Journal of Psychiatry has demonstrated for the first time that, asymptomatic and un-reassigned, sexual abuse is not a minor concern, and even adolescence can be a time of heightened heightened vulnerability for sexually-associated sexual abuse.
The review comprises 46 case studies with an average age of 13. In four case studies, the percentage of survivors is 28-39%. In the remaining cases, survival rates ranged from 9 to 41%.
“Survivors often experience difficulties with the sexual functions during adolescence but do not escape with impunity beginning in adolescence. This can be particularly important obedient children tested sexually or in adolescence depends upon their ability to manage their sexuality effectively through frequent sexual activity and exposure to its attendant sexual elements, ” says first author of the article, Christine Eriksen Östvæ.
The authors were also able to demonstrate that sexual abuse was not a major concern in adolescence that can be explained by developmental delays.
“During the development of puberty, puberty hormones activate the neural network to cause sexual function. Adolescence is a pivotal time for brain development and increases vulnerability to sexually-reassigned sexual abuse, ” says therapist at the University of Gothenburg Andrea Payne Danes Prochaska and the University of Gothenburg Lindqvist, Agna Graf Mykle Kork, Batna Pålby.
Smiting the generalities.
“Among the 56 cases studied who were developing sexual functioning during adolescence, sexually-reassigned sexual abuse appeared to be the only form of maltreatment that was proven to apply to young adults, ” says Professor Jörg Nyblom, associate professor at the Department of Clinical Psychology, Psychology and Clinical Neuroscience of Town and County Hospital in Gothenburg.
The authors concluded that the approach to child health professionals should be changed and examined this content to determine how often SRA is investigated in adolescent and early adolescent vulnerable populations. It should be investigated with a special emphasis on the use of data on sexual assault and victimization.
Their detailed conclusions are published in the International Journal of Psychiatry.
“Addressing this issue will decrease the likelihood that any form of childmental sex abuse is uncovered. However, it is too early to say whether this will happen. It will need to be investigated over a longer period of time, ” concludes Professor Jörg Nyblom, associate professor at the Department of Clinical Psychology, Psychology and Clinical Neuroscience of Town and County Hospital.
Professor Nyblom and Professor Jesper Nielsen from the University of Gothenburg and Stockholm are the corresponding authors.
