Saywitz, Karen J.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v59 n5 p682-91 Oct 1991
Conducted medical checkups on five- and seven-year-old girls (n=72), one-half of whom also received genital examinations. Later solicited girls' memories. Most girls in genital condition revealed vaginal and anal contact only when asked directly about it. Children who had nongenital examination never falsely reported genital touch in free recall or doll demonstration. (Author/NB)
