Abstract:

Although children’s willingness to disclose maltreatment is likely affected by their perceptions of consequences that might result from disclosure, few studies have tested this possibility. In this study, maltreated and nonmaltreated 4- to 9-year-olds were read vignettes describing a child disclosing an adult’s wrongdoing to another. With age, nonmaltreated children were less likely to think that the disclosure recipient would react with anger toward the child, whereas maltreated children were more likely to predict the disclosure recipient would be angry at the child. Results have implications for social information processing biases in maltreated children and legal responses to abuse allegations.
