Incidence and Impact of Sexual Abuse in a Child Outpatient Sample: The Role of Direct Inquiry.
Lanktree, Cheryl; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v15 n4 p447-53 1991
Sixty-four charts from a child psychiatry outpatient department were reviewed before and after clinicians were instructed to directly query sexual abuse. Only 6.9 percent of charts initially indicated sexual abuse, compared to findings of 31.4 percent (11.5 percent of boys and 50 percent of girls) after children were asked about molestation. Sexually abused children showed more psychological symptoms. (Author/DB)
