Children's perceptions of genital examinations during sexual abuse evaluations.

Child Welfare 1993 January
Children's reactions to the medical evaluation of sexual abuse and the methods that enhance their coping ability have not been well addressed in the literature.

Research is needed to develop the most effective techniques for reducing children's stress during a genital examination.
