Widom, Cathy Spatz; Morris, Suzanne
Psychological Assessment, v9 n1 p34-46 Mar 1997
Accuracy of adult recollections of sexual abuse were compared for adults known to have been abused about 20 years earlier and matched controls. Results from 1,196 adults indicate substantial under-reporting, gender differences in reporting and accuracy, good discriminant validity, and predictive efficiency of self-reports for women. (SLD)
