Summary "Describes the first systematic, longitudinal investigation of the long-term outcomes for adolescents and young adults who were involved in criminal court prosecutions as child sexual abuse victims ... Testifying repeatedly, especially in cases involving severe abuse, continued to predict adverse mental health consequences over time ... Children's developmental level at the time of the legal case also played an important role in predicting long-term outcomes. Overall, findings highlight the need to consider multiple factors when assessing consequences of legal involvement on child victims"--Back cover.
