Hearing their voices - Healing their hearts. - Carol W. Yarborough
The mission of the Dickerson Children's Advocacy Center is to provide comprehensive assessment and treatment services to physically and sexually abused children ages 0-18 years throughout the Midlands of South Carolina.
Over 30% of victims never disclose the experience to ANYONE. Almost 80% initally deny abuse or are tentative in disclosing. Approximately 75% disclose accidentally. More than 20% eventaully recant even though the abuse occurred. Fabricated sexual abuse reports constitute only 1%-4% of all reported cases. Of these reports, 75% are falsely reported by adults, 25% are reported by children, children 1/2% of the time.
