Abstract:

3rd place 2008 Disseration Award -Lindsay completed her dissertation at the University of California, Irvine, under the supervision of Jodi Quas.
Little is known about the process by which children disclose the wrongdoing of known and trusted adults. Yet, this knowledge is critical for the prosecution of child maltreatment. In this study, maltreated and nonmaltreated 4- to 9-year-olds (n = 235) were read vignettes describing a child disclosing an adult's (parent's or stranger's) wrongdoing. Older children expected to be believed more often when disclosing a stranger's wrongdoing. Also, older children, particularly nonmaltreated ones, protected parent perpetrators. Results provide insight into the role of developmental and socio-contextual factors in children's disclosures of traumatic experiences and have considerable legal and clinical implications.
