Journal of School Psychology, v39 n1 p25-44 Jan-Feb 2001
Reports the results of two studies comparing school professionals' attributions of blame to a child victim, a father/perpetrator, and a nonparticipating mother in hypothetical vignettes of father-daughter incest. Results indicate that all professional groups assigned some degree of blame to the child victim and nonparticipating mother and very much or total blame to the father. (Contains 47 references, 3 tables, and an appendix.) (Author/GCP)
