The Pathways of Problematic Sexual Behavior: A Literature Review of Factors Affecting Adult Sexual Behavior in Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse

The Pathways of Problematic Sexual Behavior: A Literature Review of Factors Affecting Adult Sexual Behavior in Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse | PTSD & Adventure Therapy Curation | Scoop.it

"(I)t is unclear why some individuals respond to childhood sexual abuse by withdrawal, fear and anxiety, while others respond with impulsiveness and acting-out behavior. This literature review finds that there are two distinct factors which account for differences in sexual behavior among adult survivors of CSA: (a) the gender of the victim, and (b) the age at onset of victimization. Based on this data, an integrative framework is proposed, incorporating elements of social learning theory and psychoanalytic concepts, to explain the etiology of problematic adult sexual behaviors, as well as corresponding implications for clinical treatment."

Potential treatment for cognitive effects of stress-related disorders, including PTSD

Researchers have identified a potential medical treatment for the cognitive effects of stress-related disorders, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

 

'"When we examined the hippocampal neurons of the stressed mice, we found that their RyR2 channels had become destabilized and leaky compared with channels from normal non-stressed mice which were not leaky.

 

There was a remodeling of the channels that we had previously seen in heart and skeletal muscles from animal models of chronic diseases including heart failure and muscular dystrophy. We found these same leaky channels in samples from patients with these disorders but not in those from healthy humans," said Dr. Marks.

 

"The next question was: Do the leaky channels affect memory and learning, two functions that are impaired in individuals with PTSD?" said Dr. Marks. "Using classic behavioral and cognitive function tests, including a water-maze and object-recognition tests, we found that the stressed mice developed profound cognitive abnormalities affecting both learning and memory."'
