Nonoffending Parent Expectations of Sexually Abused Children: Predictive Factors and Influence on Children's Recovery
Kouyoumdjian, Haig; Perry, Andrea R.; Hansen, David J.
Journal of Child Sexual Abuse, v18 n1 p40-60 2009
This study examined the influence of parental expectations on the functioning of sexually abused children. Participants included 67 sexually abused youth and 63 of their nonoffending primary caregivers. Parental expectations about how sexual abuse will impact children were predictive of parents' ratings of children's behavior at pretreatment, while parental expectations of children's overall future functioning were not predictive of parents' ratings of children's behavior. Parental expectations about how sexual abuse will impact their children and about their children's overall future functioning were not predictive of parents' ratings of children's behavior at posttreatment. Results highlight the influential role the sexual abuse label has in shaping parental expectations about children's functioning. Recommendations for research and intervention are discussed.
