Responding to Children's Disclosure of Familial Abuse: What Survivors Tell Us.
Palmer, Sally E.; Brown, Ralph A.; Rae-Grant, Naomi I.; Loughlin, M. Joanne
Child Welfare, v78 n2 p259-82 Mar-Apr 1999
Surveyed adult survivors of abuse about their attempts, as children, to get help by disclosing it to someone who might intervene. Found that disclosure usually did not bring an end to the abuse, and that little action was taken to control the perpetrator; responses received by children were linked to their levels of self-esteem and family functioning as adults.
