Abstract

This study examined factors that were hypothesized to predict victim blame in the case of physical child abuse and in the case of rape. Questionnaires were completed by 897 college students. The results suggested that the defensive attribution hypothesis (particularly the notionof harm avoidance motives) was consistent with the current findings. In contrast, just world theory was not supported. Victim blame in child abuse and victim blame in rape were predicted by similar factors. The factors that best predicted victim blame were empathy, locus of control, and prior physical abuse. Personal similarity was a statisticallysignificant predictor for both child blame and rape victim blame. Just world beliefs had virtually no predictive power, when other factors were taken into consideration.
