Whether unfamiliar or familiar with some of the concepts involved in this material, you can benefit from information in this course. Noting that sexual abuse in childhood can cause physical as well as mental harm later in life, a team of behavioral scientists and psychologists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institute of Mental Health, present a collection of 14 papers that connect current scientific literature, basic trauma research, and clinical practice. Research into the connections between childhood abuse and social, psychological, behavioral, and health outcomes are summarized and theorized before intervention strategies are described.
