Harrison, Patricia Ann; And Others
Journal of Adolescent Chemical Dependency, v1 n1 p53-67 1990
Examined data from 1,227 boys in adolescent chemical dependency treatment centers to determine prevalence of history of child sexual abuse. Found only small proportion (6.6%) disclosed history of intra- or extra-familial sexual abuse. Abuse victims could be distinguished from counterparts by more serious psychopathology, behavior problems, and environmental risk. (Author/NB)
