      Abstract

      This paper seeks to explore some of what we can learn from looking at adult
      women’s stories of their experiences of disclosing childhood sexual abuse. The
      research upon which the paper is based is an inter-disciplinary analysis of
      “what happens” when women disclose child sexual abuse to others over the life
      course. A socially aware understanding of the meaning of narrative and storytelling
      has become of key importance in this research and begins to offer new
      ways in which to develop research on sexually abusive experiences which
      broadens the agenda of research on childhood sexual abuse. In particular
      understanding narrative has offered new ways of accessing and understanding
      issues relating to later life (that is, post-childhood) for women who have
      experienced childhood sexual abuse.
