dc.description.abstractThe use of anatomically detailed (AD) dolls to identify the sexual abuse of children is a controversial issue. Due to specific dilemmas concerning the use thereof, the question arose as to whether using non-anatomically detailed dolls (NAD) could be as effective, or even more effective. Very little research in this regard has been conducted overseas, and to date none has been done in South Africa. The objective of this study was therefore firstly to determine the viability of the use of NAD-dolls in identifying the sexual abuse of children. To achieve this objective the responses of 38 (22 white and 16 black) sexually abused girls, and 36 (18 white and 18 black) non-sexually abused girls to NAD-dolls, were compared. Secondly, an attempt was made to produce cross-cultural data, in other words the reactions of the white and black girls to the dolls were ascertained. In this case the responses of the sexually abused white girls and non-sexually abused white girls to the NAD dolls, were compared to the responses of these girls' black counterparts. A chi-square analysis of the results could not show any statistically significant differences in respect of either of the two objectives. However, according to a more descriptive approach to the data, it became evident that certain tendencies regarding the responses of sexually molested girls and non-sexually molested girls to the NAD-dolls did in fact exist. It also appears as if certain tendencies regarding the responses of white and black girls to the NAD-dolls exist as well. use of non-anatomically detailed dolls; viability of the use of nonanatomically detailed dolls; sexually abused girls; non-sexually abused girls; use of anatomically detailed dolls; assessment of sexual abuse; cross-cultural study; descriptive approach; white and black girlsen_ZA
