«[T]his review identified five distinct themes regarding CSA disclosure: [D]isclosure is best viewed as an iterative, interactive process rather than a discrete event done within a relational context; [c]ontemporary models reflect a social–ecological, person-in-environment framework for understanding the complex interplay of individual, familial, contextual, and cultural factors involved in CSA disclosure; [a]ge and gender are significant disclosure factors; [t]here is a lack of a life-course perspective; and [b]arriers to disclosure continue to outweigh facilitators.» (p. 280) «In terms of interpersonal and environmental factors, family dynamics can play a part in deterring disclosure. [F]amilies characterized by rigidly defined gender roles, patriarchal attitudes that perpetuate power imbalances between men and women, parents and children, presence of other forms of child abuse and/or domestic violence, chaotic family structure, dysfunctional communication, and social isolation have been found to suppress disclosure […]. In regard to broader environmental factors, disclosure can be hindered when involved and supportive community members are not available, or not trained in sensitive responses, or when child victims anticipate not being believed by neighbors and other people outside the family […].» (p. 279)
