Childhood Emotional Abuse In Incarcerated Females: Use Of The PAI In Identifying Complex Trauma

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examined the relationship between childhood emotional abuse (CEA), Complex Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD), and Substance Use Disorders in 99 female inmates. Participants completed the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI) and the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire. Descriptive analyses revealed women who reported moderate to severe CEA experienced significantly higher levels of substance use and more mental health needs. Group differences in substance use and mental health symptoms were not detected by the PAI. Results suggest the PAI has limited ability in identifying individuals who have experienced CEA. Further, female inmates report significant histories of abuse, substance use, and mental health problems.
