In the original article, there was an error. Prior research has reflected the question presented above, demonstrating that mindfulness-based therapies are more effective for women with histories childhood sexual abuse (Brotto et al., 2008).
The reference for Brotto et al., 2008 was incorrectly written. It should be Brotto et al., 2012. A correction has been made to the Discussion, the end of the last paragraph prior to limitations and future directions:
Prior research has reflected the question presented above, demonstrating that mindfulness-based therapy more effectively enhances arousal among women with histories childhood sexual abuse than cognitive behavioral therapies (Brotto et al., 2012). Given that women with histories of childhood sexual abuse show distinct stress responses (Meston and Lorenz, 2013) and oxytocinergic profiles (Heim et al., 2008; Pierrehumbert et al., 2010), perhaps such modifications in the oxytocinergic system makes these women more sensitive to interventions that impact their oxytocin system, such as mindfulness training.
The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
