Abstract

AIM: To study factors of relevance for the understanding of disclosure of child sexual abuse. METHODS: Cases from a Swedish district court involving 47 children in which allegations of child sexual abuse had been corroborated by a confession from the defendant were studied. RESULTS: Delayed disclosure was related to a close relationship with the perpetrator and young age at the first experience of abuse. Disrupted communication during the police interview was related to less violent abuse. CONCLUSION: The findings highlight the importance of social factors in children's disclosure of sexual abuse.
