Jackson, Helene; Nuttall, Ronald
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v17 n1 p127-43 Jan-Feb 1993
A survey of 656 social workers, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and psychologists rated the credibility of vignettes alleging child sexual abuse. Seven case factors affected credibility: perpetrator's race, relationship to victim, and history of substance abuse; and victims' race, affect, age, and behavioral changes. Several clinician factors were significant, such as age, gender, and discipline. (Author/JDD)
