Children who initially denied incidents of sexual abuse due to threat were examined. Assessments were with psychological instruments and polygraph. Findings indicated parent, investigator and perpertrator suggestibility could be overcome. Children were able to report sexual assault. Results supported methodology for assessment of child sexual abuse without suggestibility.
