Biaggio, Mary Kay; And Others
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v17 n1-2 p33-42 1991
Results from questionnaires completed by 250 college students, faculty, and staff and from in-depth interviews with 12 sexual abuse victims revealed that few subjects made formal reports to authorities. Found fearfulness associated with formal reporting and tendency for victims to minimize victimization. Victims were likely to talk about victimization with female friends or others whom they considered supportive. (Author/NB)
