A Meta-Analysis of the Prevalence of Child Sexual Abuse Disclosure in Forensic Settings

IPSCAN (in conjunction with APSAC) has a video journal club now available for viewing. A Meta-Analysis of the Prevalence of Child Sexual Abuse Disclosure in Forensic Settings (FULL TEXT) was APSAC’s outstanding research article of the year and is the focus of this video session:

Authors Sheri Madigan, Corry Azzopardi, and Rachel Eirich discuss their comprehensive meta-analysis of the research on sexual abuse disclosure during forensic interviews with children. Using a large sample of 45 studies and more than 31,000 children, the researchers found that about a third of suspected victims do not report abuse when asked, with those who are younger and male being most at risk for nondisclosure.
