Abstract

This literature review evaluates the utility of using Ullman et al.’s (2007) model for psychosocial variables and PTSD in victims of sexual assault within a larger population of violence against women. This review evaluates the relationship between PTSD and global support, self-blame, assault severity, negative social reactions and avoidance coping in victims of child physical and sexual abuse, intimate partner violence and stalking. Overall, the articles described in this review supported the use of Ullman et al.’s model with other forms of violence against women.
