COMPREHENSIVE LITERATURE REVIEW 4Final Project: Comprehensive Literature Review Introduction The following paper focuses on sexual abuse and potential antecedent negativepsychosocial effects. Chiefly, this paper will examine if there is evidence in recent literature(2009 -2020) that captures the relationship between sexual abuse and risky sexual behavior. Theoperational definition of sexual abuse in this paper will include a self-reported history of sexualabuse experienced in childhood, adolescence and adult life; abuse from strangers and partners,singular or repeated instances of abuse. The author’s interest lies within age of sexual debut,condom use, HIV preventative measures, multiple or concurrent partners, self-efficacy in STIprevention, which are encompassed as risky sexual behavior (RSB). The criteria of inclusion for the comprehensive literature will be comprised of a decentsample size (depending on the research method used), solid acquaintance of previous literaturepertaining to the topic at hand and good measures of reliability and validity. Studies that haveused a sample smaller than ten subjects will not be considered. Furthermore, to provide evidencefrom a broad spectrum of studies, six quantitative (quasi-experimental, and descriptive non-experimental) and qualitative six (i.e. phenomenological, ethnographic study and groundedtheory) studies will be examined. Lastly, experimental studies will not be included as they arenot ethically sound for the topic at hand (e.g. concern for welfare of respondents).BackgroundA vast amount of research has been dedicated to assessing the physical and psychosocial effects of childhood and adolescent maltreatment (e.g. physical, sexual abuse and neglect).
