Several aspects of childhood sexual abuse were investigated to determine the "best model" for predicting long-term symptoms found both in male and female survivors. Level of severity accounted for the most variation for both men and women for each of the five measures of trauma symptoms (dissociation, anxiety, depression, sexual dysfunction, and sleep disturbance).

Differences and similarities between the findings for men and women are discussed. (Authors)
