Abstract [en]

Women with a history of childhood sexual abuse experience

a range of difficulties. The aim of the present study is to

examine the personal resources of women with such a history

measured using the SOC scale. The relationships of SOC to other

factors were analysed. Eighty-one women who participated in

self-help groups were questioned using the 29-item version of

the SOC scale. The SOC mean score for the whole group was

104.1 (range 58187). The women who had a more than tenyear

duration of sexual abuse had a low SOC score (M = 96.8)

but those who did not remember the number of years of

duration had an even lower score (M = 94.4). In a first step

of multiple regression analysis of childhood sexual abuse

characteristics and SOC total score, only duration of sexual

abuse was entered and accounted for 10.3 per cent of the

variance. In a second step of multiple regression analysis,

relationship to fellow workers was a significant predictor of

SOC and contributed to 31.7 per cent of the variance
