  • Parental response to sexual abuse varies by age of victim, suspect

    A new study co-written by Ted Cross, a faculty member in the School of Social Work, indicated that child victims of sexual abuse are less likely to receive parental support when the alleged perpetrator is an adolescent rather than an adult. The study, which comprised data from four states, appeared in the October issue of Journal of Interpersonal Violence.
