Ligezinska, Malgorzata; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n2 p111-25 Feb 1996
This study evaluated the emotional and behavioral adjustment of 41 children (ages 5-15) within the first 3 months following disclosure of extrafamilial sexual abuse. Findings indicated that children's perceptions of self-blame and guilt for the abuse and the extent of traumatization predicted their self-reported symptomatology of depression, social efficacy, and general and abuse-related fears.
