abstract

  • This article presents a review of literature and concepts linking child sexual abuse history and HIV risk behavior. Correlates of both CSA and HIV risk are reviewed and a proposed model of association is presented. Much of the research on this topic to date is theoretical or correlational in design. Complex and rigorous research designs allowing for further exploration of mediating and moderating variables are warranted to establish the nature of these relationships. Clinical implications include the need to assess: (1) abuse history among high-risk populations and (2) HIV risk behavior among CSA and other trauma survivors. Copyright © by The Haworth Press, Inc.
