Victim Emotional Response: Effects on Social Reaction to Victims of Rape.
Calhoun, Lawrence G.; And Others
The effects of the victim's emotional style on social reactions to the rape victim are examined. Of specific interest were perceptions of victim credibility, degree to which she would later be socially accepted and the degree to which the observers believed the victim found the rape unpleasant. Subjects (N=55) viewed two videotapes depicting a prewritten interview between a psychologist and a rape victim. In one tape, the victim was emotionally upset and in the other, the victim was emotionally subdued. After viewing the tape, participants were asked questions within five areas about the rape incident and the victim. Their responses are discussed. (Author/LFB)
