Understanding the Impact ofChildhood Sexual Abuse on Men’s Risk Behavior: Protocol for a Mixed-MethodsStudy.JMIR Research Protocols,7(2). doi: 10.2196/resprot.9071Summary: In this article, Brown, Steen and Benoit (2018) assert that childhood sexualabuse (CSA) has negative antecedent outcomes for black and Latino gay men, whichinclude poor mental health and high-risk sexual behavior. The authors conceptualize thatCSE, together with their social identities influence relationships as adults, alcohol anddrug use, and psychological distress. The goal of this research is to inform testableapproaches to incorporating sexual abuse history into other mental health care used bymen with a history of CSE.Research question of authors: How can qualitative assessments of sexual abuse historybe used in conjunction with other mental health screening to better understand the impactof abuse. Method: The researchers use mixed-method, cross sectional interviews with 80 black andLatino men in New York City to examine sexual experiences including non-consensualacts with both men and women during childhood. Strength: Using mixed methods allows for data triangulation, enabling the researchers toassess their reliability and validity. Furthermore, a strength of this research is its ability toassess intersecting social identities (race, gender, ability etc.) that derive an understandingon the impact of CSE on risky antecedent behavior. Unlike some quantitative researchthat takes a limited understanding of what abuse consists of, this study considers culturalvariations of what sexual abuse is. Limitation: This study doesn’t have a truly representative sample as there are severalexclusions from participation (i.e. Non-English speakers). Moreover, the recruitment forthis study favors those with internet access. 2.Benoit, E., & Downing, M. J. (2013).
