Children's Disclosure of Sexual Abuse during Formal Investigation.
Keary, Kay; Fitzpatrick, Carol
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n7 p543-48 Jul 1994
Assessment of 251 children found a strong positive correlation between having previously told (or not told) someone about sexual abuse and disclosure (or nondisclosure) during the assessment. Results call into question the value of formal assessment in children who have not previously told someone about abuse. The value of a "nonleading" interview style is also questioned. (DB)
