  1. Episodically homeless women with serious mental illness : prevalence of physical and sexual assault.

    Article - En anglais

    Three aspects of physical and sexual assault in the histories of 99 episodically homeless, seriously mentally ill women were assessed :

    • lifetime prevalence ;

    • severity, co-occurrence, and recency ;

    • and associations between levels of this victimization and specific characteristics of the women.

    Results indicate that the lifetime risk for violent victimization was so high (97%) as to amount to normative experiences for this population.
