Titre :

One in four of the incest perpetrators was not an adult

Contenu :

In this article, the authors states that Alpert misstated important findings regarding the prevalence of child sexual abuse, apparently because she overlooked the very sort of difference in defining sexual abuse to which she had just referred. Reading Alpert's (1990) misleading reference to Russell (1986), or even reading Russell's work itself, is one to feel outraged to discover that the epidemic of child sexual abuse is even larger than one may have thought, or should one merely feel confused by findings that are based on such broad definitions of child sexual abuse as to concern something more than that which most people regard as abusive incest—an adult perpetrator and a child victim? Regardless of whether the reader considers sexual contact between children who are relatives more or less objectionable than sexual contact between an adult and a child who are relatives, the two forms of abuse are different, and one form should not be confused with, and serve to exaggerate, the other.
