Abstract

This study was developed around the finding of previous studies that measured an increased likelihood for victimization in populations that have high experiences with adversity such as those with disabilities, impoverished individuals, those who have experienced childhood trauma, and individuals who have or currently engage in substance abuse. This study expanded on this previous research by examining how this effect is mediated by resilience. The purpose of the current was to determine the effect of resilience on victimization in individuals who have experienced adverse life events. Participants completed the Adverse Childhood Experiences scale (ACE) as well as the Resilience Scale for Adults (RSA).This study is highly important when considering the effects of coping as well as decreasing the stigma of crime and victimization surrounding disability, poverty, childhood trauma, and substance abuse.
