Mothers of Sexually Abused Children and the Concept of Collusion: A Literature Review.
Joyce, Patricia A.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v6 n2 p75-92 1997
Reviews research on mothers of children sexually abused within the family. Reports that these mothers are not necessarily more disturbed psychologically than mothers of nonabused children. Most mothers did believe that their children had been abused, thus challenging the persisting explanation of collusion in clinical practice. A broader concept is explored. (RJM)
