  A Clinical Sample of Women Who Have Sexually Abused Children
 
 
Title: A Clinical Sample of Women Who Have Sexually Abused Children
Author: Faller, Kathleen Coulborn
Appeared in: Journal of child sexual abuse
Paging: Volume 4 (1996) nr. 3 pages 13-30
Year: 1996-01-08
Contents: The research described is a study of a clinical sample of 72 women who allegedly sexually abused 332 children. The Sample is examined from a variety of perspectives, including whether the abuse was intrafamilial (n = 33), extrafamilial (n = 18), or both (n = 21); and whether the abuse involved multiple intrafamilial offenders (n = 33), a solo intrafamilial offender (n = 17), multiple extrafamilial offenders (n = 16), or solo extrafamilial offenders (n = 6). Social situational factors and individual deficits [mental illness (n = 23), mental retardation (n = 16), substance abuse (n = 37), and other maltreatment of their children (n = 61)] that might lead women to sexually abuse children are examined. Case outcomes, including the number of confessions (n = 49), criminal prosecution (n = 3), and protection of victims (n = 44) are described.
