The purpose of this study was to focus on the devastating long term effects of childhood sexual abuse (CSA). The emotional trauma experienced by women survivors of CSA can have long-lasting negative effects extending into adulthood. A growing number of Americans with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are those who have experienced CSA. An extensive literature was performed to investigate the long term effects of this type of abuse and the treatment interventions that may be helpful to this population of women. Group therapy was shown to have a positive impact on women who have experienced CSA. A search was conducted to locate an appropriate funder for therapy groups for women survivors of CSA experiencing symptoms of PTSD. The actual submission and funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
