Adult Disclosure of Sexual Abuse: A Primary Cause of Psychological Distress?
McNulty, Craig; Wardle, Jane
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n7 p549-55 Jul 1994
This paper surveys research evidence relating to the disclosure of childhood sexual abuse by adults and argues that, for some adults, the disclosure of sexual abuse may be a primary cause of psychological distress, resulting in the dissolution of social support systems and increasing the individual's vulnerability to psychiatric disorder.
