CSA As A Traumatic Experience

Decent Essays
CSA as a traumatic experience affects children in different ways. The majority of the studies in this literature review suggest a possible causal association in which increasing exposure to CSA led to decline in educational achievement of both victims and survivors. Some studies also suggest that the poorer achievement of those exposed to CSA could be influenced by other social, family or individual characteristics. However, findings in some studies suggest that some survivors are fairly resilient and therefore do not demonstrate poor academic outcomes. Natural intelligence, a child’s personal qualities as well as some cultural norms enable some sexually abused children to adjust and thus present positive outcomes in educational achievement.
