Sammanfattning (abstract):
Young victims of child sexual abuse can for a variety of developmental, social, and contextual reasons have difficulties disclosing their experiences. The present project aimed to shed light on preschoolers’ disclosure tendencies by closely examining 57 Swedish court cases of child sexual abuse. All allegations were verified from supporting corroborative evidence (e.g. video-recordings of the abuse, DNA evidence, conclusive medical examinations) and had received a convicting verdict. While the majority of children could provide information about their victimization, their first disclosures were often delayed. A range of barriers could hinder the preschoolers from telling. In line with previous research, the victims were often reluctant during their police interviews. Repeated sessions, focused questions and other reassurances could, however, facilitate this difficult process.
