Asking youths about exposure to child sexual abuse
Christine Ann Walsh
Written in English
Methodological, data, and theoretical triangulation supports the developmental and ecological validity of the CSA measure, suggesting that youths are able to understand and respond appropriately to the CSA sub-types.The effects of child sexual abuse (CSA) are well documented with harms that impact across every domain of a child"s functioning, yet accurate data on the extent of the problem is lacking. This data is critical to inform policies and programs aimed at effective intervention. A fundamental first step to achieving this end is the development of a theoretically-based, valid and reliable measure of child maltreatment. However, few theoretically-based instruments are available and fewer still have been rigorously evaluated. The Childhood Experiences of Violence Questionnaire (CEVQ) was developed within an ecological-developmental framework as a population-based measure of youth victimization.Significantly elevated scores for some behavioural and emotional disorders were noted for CSA, severe CSA and a severity score, suggesting a moderate support for a dose-response relationship.The present finding suggests that the CSA measure of the CEVQ should be used as an epidemiological tool rather than as a diagnostic measure and the CSA sub-types are less reliable and stable than the composite measure.The criterion validity and the sensitivity and specificity of CSA and severe CSA were better than the individual CSA sub-types when compared with clinician report suggesting that the CSA is a more effective measure than the individual sub-types.Preliminary evidence on the psychometric properties of the instrument suggests that it is a reliable and valid measure of child physical abuse (CPA) and CSA although the sub-types of CSA have not been evaluated. This thesis assessed the theoretical and psychometric properties of the CSA sub-types.Psychometric evaluation supports the stability of CSA and severe CSA, with individual CSA sub-types and contingency questions exhibiting a moderate degree of stability. The face, content, construct, and criterion validity of the CSA sub-types demonstrate validity. However, greater variability was noted in the validity measures of each of the individual sub-types.
