Psychological effects of sexual harassment, appraisal of harassment, and organizational climate among U.S. Army soldiers

Psychological effects of sexual harassment, appraisal of harassment, and organizational climate among U.S. Army soldiers

Military Medicine 163(2): 63-67

This study examines the effects of three types of unwanted sexual experiences in the workplace on the psychological well-being of male and female U.S. Army soldiers, and the mediating or moderating roles of appraisal of sexual harassment, organizational climate, and the sociodemographic profile of victims. A survey was administered to 1,060 male soldiers and 305 female soldiers between May and July, 1995, at three Army posts in the United States. Unwanted sexual experiences were found to be significant predictors of psychological symptoms for male and female soldiers. Certain aspects of organizational climate and appraisal of sexual harassment were also significant predictors of psychological symptoms.
