Dare To Tell: Advanced Dynamics in Child Sexual Abuse Disclosures
Dallas CAC Lecture Series


Dare To Tell: Advanced Dynamics in Child Sexual Abuse Disclosures
Presented By: Jenna Quinn
Understanding the nature and dynamics of child sexual abuse is critical for child protection and law enforcement investigators. Credible accounts of child sexual abuse are constantly questioned because of a failure to understand that delayed disclosure is common for survivors. The nature of child sexual abuse makes disclosure a complex, often life-long, process. It’s remarkable that any survivor will tell at all when you examine the intricate and overlapping barriers to disclosure. Through research and personal testimonies, participants will take an in depth look at the most common factors influencing delayed disclosure, partial disclosure, non-disclosure, and accidental disclosure. Moreover, participants will also address critical components to help alleviate these barriers.
