Children who have been sexually abused display certain typical perceptions and behavioural patterns, of which a number are discussed in the context of the literature on the subject, especially those mentioned by Wieland (1997). The patterns are illustrated from a specific case handled by the author, with names and particulars changed for reasons of confidentiality. It indicates that these behavioural patterns were not taken into account during court procedures. In conclusion some detail is given as to how this child was handled in court.
