[Articles] Long-term outcomes of childhood sexual abuse: an umbrella review

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpsy/article/PIIS2215-0366(19)30286-X/fulltext?rss=yes

Although childhood sexual abuse was associated with a wide range of psychosocial and health outcomes, systematic reviews on only two psychiatric disorders (post-traumatic stress disorder and schizophrenia) and one psychosocial outcome (substance misuse) were of a high quality. Whether services should prioritise interventions that mitigate developing certain psychiatric disorders following childhood abuse requires further review. Higher-quality meta-analyses for specific outcomes and more empirical studies on the developmental pathways from childhood sexual abuse to later outcomes are necessary.
