«The aim of this systematic review is to provide a comprehensive summary of available data regarding the mediators of the association between CSA [child sexual abuse] and revictimization in romantic relationships.» (p. 4)
«The most commonly-used databases (PsycInfo, Psycarticle, Google Scholar, and Medline) were used to identify articles that met the inclusion criteria: peer-reviewed articles, published in English or French, that examined a mediator in the association between CSA and DV/IPV [dating violence/intimate partner violence] victimization in adolescence or adulthood. […] This process led to a final sample of 18 studies […].» (p. 4)

«Although this review contributes to a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in the intimate partner revictimization experiences of CSA victims, results remain inconclusive regarding a number of factors due to limited research in the area. Indeed, in the present review, PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder] symptoms is the mediator that has been the most investigated, and was found to be significant in three of the four studies reviewed. Some mediators have been examined in two studies. For example, dissociation has shown inconsistent results. It failed to show a mediational effect in a cross-sectional study […], yet was found to act as a mechanism linking CSA to IPV in a longitudinal study […]. Hostility/anger was also examined in two studies, but with consistent results across longitudinal and cross-sectional designs […]. Finally, some mediators have been shown to have a significant mediational effect but only in one cross-sectional study: emotional deprivation, vulnerability to harm and illness, having a traditional or a violent partner, fearful dating experience, and problem behaviors all mediated the association between CSA and revictimization. Some mediators have also been examined in longitudinal investigations but were found to have no effect: affect dysregulation, depression, and adolescent sexual victimization.» (p. 15)
