The Sexual Victimization of Male Children: A Review of Previous Research.
Vander Mey, Brenda J.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v12 n1 p61-72 1988
Research indicates that male children are more likely to be abused by nonfamily than by family members. Residing in a neglectful home or a mother-headed household and having previous homosexual contact tend to heighten risk for sexual abuse by nonfamily members. Effects appear to be serious and long-lasting. (Author/JW)
