It is well documented that violence against women occurs throughout the lifespan and has catastrophic effects. In addition to the significant negative psychological and physical consequences at the time of the abuse, the effects of trauma are carried by women throughout life and impinge upon their physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being. The purposes of this secondary data analysis are to: (a) compare the psychological consequences for women of childhood sexual abuse and intimate partner violence, (b) examine ways in which health-care providers meet the needs of abused teenagers and post battered women, and (c) discuss the findings of this analysis and symposium and their implications for nursing. This synthesis is conducted within a developmental and systems perspective. Women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse (N=189) and post-battered women (N=105) are compared using the following instruments: Beck Depression Inventory and Symptom Checklist-90-Revised. Similarities and differences in the frequencies and intensities of depressive and post-traumatic stress symptoms will be presented. Commonalities between the two descriptive studies that examined provision of health care with abused teenagers (N=20) and post-battered women (N=50) are discussed. Implications for nursing practice and health-care policy are addressed.
