Berliner, Lucy; Conte, Jon R.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n3 p371-84 Mar 1995
Eighty-two child victims of sexual abuse and their families were interviewed about their experiences with disclosure and intervention an average of 3.5 years later. Children reported primarily favorable experiences. Factors associated with increased distress included more contact with intervention professionals, having a medical exam, and expecting to testify. Factors not associated were placement, offender removal, and testifying. (Author/JDD)
