Mar 31, 2019 11:00am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 11:30am


Description

The experience of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) may result in psychological and behavioral challenges for many. Some survivors of CSA engage in risky sexual behaviors and may experience difficulties related to the development of their sexual identity. This study explored the relationship between CSA, risky sexual behaviors, and sexual identity development among survivors of CSA. We will share the results of our study including clinical implications and recommendations for future research.

  • Participants will understand the results of our study related to the relationship between childhood sexual abuse, risky sexual behaviors, and sexual identity development.
  • Participants will be able to identify at least two implications relevant for counselors working with CSA survivors related to coping and sexual identity development.
  • Participants will be able to identify at least three recommendations for future research to better understand the relationship between CSA, risky sexual behaviors, and sexual identity development.
