Studies among offenders have repeatedly reported an elevated prevalence of childhood sexual abuse (CSA), especially among sex offenders. This study aimed to examine differences between offenders with and without a history of CSA. From correctional and court files socio-demographic, psychiatric, and criminological data were collected for a representative sample of violent (n = 292) and sex offenders (n = 159) in the Canton of Zurich, Switzerland. Logistic regression analysis showed sexually abused offenders differed substantially from those not sexually abused. They were more likely to have grown up under a combination of distressing living conditions, to be mentally ill, and to prostitute themselves. They were also more likely to commit a sex offence, to have a pertinent criminal record (OR = 2.6) and a history of court-ordered therapy (OR = 2.6). The findings corroborate the association between CSA and sex offending. CSA appears to be associated with persistent offending and lack of therapy success.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-05-18T09:36:52Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Endrass, Jérôme</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Elbert, Thomas</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Urbaniok, Frank</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-05-18T09:36:52Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Vetter, Stefan</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Sexual abuse among violent and sex offenders and its relevance for persistent offending</dcterms:title> <dcterms:issued>2007</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Vetter, Stefan</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Urbaniok, Frank</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/38962"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Rossegger, Astrid</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Endrass, Jérôme</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Rossegger, Astrid</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
