Victims of sexual assault during childhood are particularly susceptible to repeat-victimization. This paper aims to explore the factors that are associated with the “re-victimization” phenomenon. Those factors include 1) differences between the two groups from who committed the act, 2) the age of the individuals, and 3) the mental state of the victim afterward. It then examines the related outcomes common to first-time victims, which include self-blame, post-traumatic stress disorder, and alcohol abuse, all of which can lead to re-victimization. Since these outcomes vary in degree depending on the individual's mental state, the conclusions drawn in this research provide some insight into the best ways in which we can help victims heal and cope with their injuries, in order to prevent further victimization.
