Abstract

This study investigates the contribution of post-traumatic stress symptoms to the prediction of suicidality among female adolescent survivors of sexual abuse. A one-year prospective study of 52 female survivors aged 12 to 18 years was conducted. A negative binomial regression analysis revealed that depressive symptoms as well as post-traumatic stress symptoms associated with the sexual trauma were significant predictors of suicidal ideations a year later. Post-traumatic stress symptoms remained a significant predictor of suicidal ideations even when controlling for depressive symptomatology and the presence of a past suicide attempt, thus emphasizing the relevance of post-traumatic stress symptoms in regard to suicidality in sexually abused youths.

RESULTS are discussed within the context of therapeutic modalities for survivors of a sexual trauma.
