This is an important piece of work, but seems to be missing is a differentiation between "mild" CSA and "traumagenic" CSA. many women have a childhood history of SA, but some were:

-Very young when the abuse began
-Abused repeatedly over a period of years
-Abused by someone they should have been able to trust
-Abused in a more intrusive manner
-Either themselves threatened, or a family member or cherished object threatened with violence
-Blamed or not believed when the abuse was disclosed.

These factors tend to separate a "household" group of CSA survivors (minimal on-going trauma) or "clinical" group (PTSD, generalized anxiety, depression, dissociative disorder, substance abuse or dependency).
