A new study reported in Psychology Today, shows the lifetime consequences of child sexual abuse:
For women (who composed 75 percent of the reported cases of child sexual abuse survivors we used for this study), we estimated an individual lifetime cost of approximately $283,000. Lifetime costs for men in the study were lower because the economic impact of child sexual abuse on male victims is sorely under-researched.
And these numbers merely represent victimization-related costs associated with health care, child welfare, violence and crime, and a number of other expenditures as well as productivity losses. They do not value the emotional and psychological.
