This paper analyzes American studies of child sexual abuse (CSA) in relation to later presentations of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.) The paper offers a discussion of methods, sample groups and variables in relation to the assumption and includes a critical note on PTSD as unproven. The paper quotes the diagnosis referred to in each study as a verifiable condition if not a disease. The paper has a critical conclusion and a varied bibliography.

From the Paper:

"A meta-analytical paper discussing mainly North American studies of child sexual abuse (CSA) in relation to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), noting study design and findings, in contrast with non-abused subjects and persons of other psychopathology. Subjects are discussed by age group, race and sometimes, ethnicity, social class or education, but without reference to trans-cultural psychology or significant neuropsychology, or familial biological knowledge of mental disorder. Studies adhered to the model of PTSD without mention of its imperfections, as a psychiatric diagnosis, in keeping with more theory-driven approaches of American psychology."
