Rewiktymizacja w życiu polskich kobiet z doświadczeniem wykorzystania seksualnego w dzieciństwie

Agnieszka Izdebska


W artykule przedstawiono badania poświęcone problemowi istnienia oraz charakteru związku między doświadczeniem wykorzystania seksualnego w dzieciństwie a doświadczeniem przemocy seksualnej w dorosłości. Badania przeprowadzono w grupie 1363 dorosłych Polek. Do pomiaru doświadczeń wiktymizacji seksualnej zastosowano Kwestionariusz doświadczeń dziecka wykorzystanego seksualnie (KDDWS) oraz Kwestionariusz niechcianych doświadczeń seksualnych w dorosłości (KNDSD).
Wyniki przeprowadzonych badań potwierdziły, że wystąpienie wykorzystania seksualnego w dzieciństwie wiąże się z większą szansą wystąpienia przemocy seksualnej w dorosłości oraz że większe natężenie surowości wykorzystania seksualnego w dzieciństwie wiąże się z większym natężeniem surowości rewiktymizacji. Zrealizowane badania nie wykazały natomiast, by większe natężenie surowości wykorzystania seksualnego w dzieciństwie zwiększało szansę wystąpienia rewiktymizacji w dorosłości.
