Abstract:Study 2 extended the findings from Study 1 to a smaller sample ( n = 85) of women referred for psychological assessment as part of sexual harassment litigation. This study provided a more rigorous assessment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other psychological symptomatology by employing well-known standardized measures, including the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2) and the Symptom Checklist-90-R (SCL-90-R). In this study, previous victimization was included as an additional measure of individual vulnerability. Results paralleled the findings from Study 1 in that severity was the most important factor across all outcomes. Previous victimization contributed significant variance but was nonetheless dominated by objective factors. The findings concerning attributions did not replicate in Study 2, and their theoretical and practical application requires further research.
