Disclosure Patterns of Sexual Abuse and Psychological Functioning at a 1-Year Follow-Up.
Nagel, Deborah E.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n2 p137-47 Feb 1997
This study describes the disclosure processes of 68 sexually abused girls. Circumstances of disclosure were found to be related to long-term psychological functioning. Girls who disclosed accidentally were younger, experienced abuse for shorter durations, and received the most therapy. At follow-up, those who purposefully disclosed had greater anxiety and greater difficulties in coping. (Author/PB)
