Subject:screening questions for assessing sexual victimization

Colleagues, I am looking for screening questions to assess sexual victimization occurring prior to age 18. These questions will be used in a telephone survey of women between the ages of 18 and 25. I am simply looking to assess the presence or absence of victimization with as few false negatives as possible. Can anyone direct me to a set of questions that has been used successfully for this purpose (e.g., in one of the large national surveys)? Much appreciation in advance for any assistance. David DiLillo, Ph.D. Associate Professor & Director of Clinical Training Department of Psychology 238 Burnett Hall University of Nebraska-Lincoln Lincoln, NE 68588-0308 Phone: (402) 472-3297 Fax: (402) 472-4637 Lab: http://www.unl.edu/psypage/fvi/
