Abstract

50 sexually abused girls showed significantly higher scores on depression, anxiety, and hopelessness than 50 nonabused controls. The 31 subjects who were repeatedly abused showed higher distress than the 19 abused ones. The results are discussed in the context of psychological dynamics, suicidal risk, and the need for intervention.
