Moskal's Sexual Abuse Scale was used to examine the extent of sexual abuse myth acceptance in a sample of 137 student teachers attending a teachers' training college in the Durban area. Results of the study indicate relatively high levels of sexual abuse myth acceptance among respondents in all years of study, with acceptance levels being unrelated to year of study. Myth acceptance levels for male respondents were significantly higher than acceptance levels for female respondents. These results are discussed in terms of their implications for training and for research.
