In the Childhood section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about sexual abuse during childhood:
Were you ever molested / sexually abused / raped as a child? Only include incidents that occurred up until the age of 18.
Possible responses:
→ No / can't remember / don't know
→ There was occasional molestation
→ Frequent molestation and/or isolated serious abuse
→ Occasional serious abuse over a long period
→ Frequent serious abuse over a long period

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either sexual abuse during childhood or severe sexual abuse during childhood, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Recent studies have shown that childhood abuse (particularly sexual abuse) is a strong predictor of the lifetime likelihood of developing PTSD.


One study showed that an average adult female is 6 times more sensitive to stress if she was sexually molested as a child.
