Mental Retardation and Adult Women's Perceptions of Adolescent Sexual Abuse.
Podell, David M.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n10 p809-19 Oct 1994
Women (n=288) were randomly assigned a vignette describing a sexual encounter between an adolescent girl and boy, in which variables included the girl's diagnosis (mentally retarded or nonretarded), the boy's diagnosis (mentally retarded or nonretarded), and the girl's behavior (encouraging, passive, or resisting). Factor analysis of responses yielded three factors: girl's responsibility, boy's abusiveness, and parents' responsibility. (Author/JDD)
