Jackson, Helene; Nuttall, Ronald
Social Work Research, v18 n2 p105-13 Jun 1994
Surveyed 172 social workers to determine prevalence of history of childhood abuse and extent to which background and personal characteristics affect clinical judgments about sexual abuse. Twenty-one percent of women and 22% of men reported sexual abuse history. Major factors that predicted credibility ratings of sexual abuse vignettes included gender, history of abuse, age, and work setting. (Author/NB)
