The aim of the study is to investigate the link between body self and identity processes in women who experienced sexual violence and in women without such experiences. Measurement of identity processes, using Identity and Experience Scale by Whitbourne, Sneed and Skultety, and body-self, using Questionnaire of Body Self by Sakson-Obada, were administered among control and clinical group. The control group consisted of 149 women who have not experienced sexual violence and in clinical group there were 43 women with sexual trauma. Results show that sexual trauma could lead to distortions in experiencing own body. Whereas difficulties in assimilation and integration those traumatic experiences indicate that sexual violence and changes in perception of own body might be a threat for coherence of identity.
