In this article, Table 3 was not correct owning to the initial usage of Stepwise Linear Regression Analysis. The authors have instead provided an alternative approach via usage of Multiple Linear Regression Analysis. The corrected table is available online.

The paragraph under Design and Data Analyses has been revised as follows:

Frequencies of reported CTQ and RAQ items were computed. Also, gender differences with regard to history of RA were explored through a chi-square test. Furthermore, Pearson correlations between dissociativity and its subscales, childhood and recent trauma history, and RA history were calculated. Finally, to extract the most important traumatic predictors of dissociativity, Multiple Linear Regression Analysis between single items of CTQ and total score of RAQ, as independent variables, and dissociativity and its subscales, as dependent variables, was performed.

This study aimed to ascertain the prevalence of different types of Religious/Ritual Abuse (RA) among Iranian young adults and to investigate the relationships between RA, childhood and recent trauma, and different patterns of dissociativity. A total of 100 male and 100 female university students completed and returned a 51-item questionnaire designed to detect the extent of dissociation, childhood and recent trauma history, and RA; 12.5% of participants reported history of RA. Pearson correlation analysis showed that RA strongly correlated with dissociativity. The most notable finding of this study is that RA and being victim of violence within the last 3 years are the most important traumatic predictors of dissociativity. More research on the nature of the relationship between RA and dissociation is suggested.
