Adlerian Life Tasks influenced by the Development of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms in Adult Victims of Child Sexual Abuse

This literature review examines articles that explore adult women who have histories of child sexual abuse and how that history is related to their current symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. This review will also look at how the symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder affect the Adlerian tasks of life: work, love and friends. Most of the research reviewed had findings that indicated that a definite relationship existed between child abuse and posttraumatic stress disorder.
