Are sexual and physical abuse in childhood and adolescence risk factors for being a victim of violence against women in adulthood? This report summarizes two studies that used different methodologies and samples to determine the extent to which physical and sexual abuse as a child or adolescent contribute to later abuse. In one study, researchers followed college women and men for 4 years, asking them questions about past and current victimization each year. In the other study, researchers asked urban, low-income, mostly black women who had substantiated child sexual abuse about their adolescent and adult victimization.
Service providers and counselors working with adolescents and college students, victim and women's advocacy groups, and researchers should read this study.
