Identifying teenage sexual abuse victims by questions on their daily lives
According to the World Health Association, approximately 13.4% of girls and 5.7% of boys experience child sexual abuse. Victims of child sexual abuse are more prone to, among other negative health and social outcomes, increased consumption of cannabis as teens. Teens who have been a victim to child sexual abuse are significantly more likely to participate in regular cannabis consumption than their non-sexually abused counterparts. Given its status as an international public health problem, further research needs to be completed to determine appropriate therapeutic plans for victims of child sexual abuse in order to reduce their increased odds of negative mental, physical, and emotional outcomes.
