Abstract

A clinical sample of 20 sexual harassment victims who were successful in obtaining damage awards for trauma through the judicial system were sources of this descriptive study. Ratings of physical coercion of the harassment, MMPI-2 scores, and ratings on DSM-IV symptoms were analyzed. The majority of subjects met the DSM-IV criteria of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. A cluster analysis identified four clusters of harassment victims, described as older-mature, younger-mature, anxious-guilty, and expressive-adaptive based on MMPI-2 scores and symptoms.
