Some Characteristics and Personality Problems of Children Who Are Victims of Child Abuse.
Hildreth, Gladys J.; And Others
This paper explores the concept of child abuse. The analysis begins by explaining the problems evident in defining child abuse, and presents the historical development of child abuse prevention. A theoretical discussion on personality development is also included. The second section of the paper describes results of a research project designed to measure the self-concept of 15 children who had been physically abused. Children who had lower average self-concept scores were those with severe injuries as compared to those who were moderately or mildly injured. Younger children had the lowest scores. (Author/MP)
