    Abstract

    The overarching aim of this research study was to critically analyse existing literature regarding adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. This was through exploring the journey of ‘revictimisation’ that they may face across the life span, starting from the disclosure process, and ending with adult outcomes challenging the ‘victim’ paradigm. It is the writer’s hope that this research will help to enable health and social care professionals from both adult and children services to gain an understanding of the implications that these individuals may be faced with, which will therefore enable successful evidence-based interventions.
    Three reoccurring themes have been identified throughout the literature as being contributing factors to the revictimisation that they may face. These themes have then been critically analysed and evaluated by the writer.
