The Effect of Mandatory Protective Daycare on Mutual Attachment in Maltreating Mother-Infant Dyads.
Crittenden, Patricia M.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v7 n3 p297-300 1983
Follow-up of 22 children for whom protective daycare was sought suggested that mandatory protective daycare had hastened,but not caused, the removal of children. It was hypothesized that reactions to the placement exacerbated the already strained mother-infant relationships, leading to increased abuse and neglect. (Author/CL)
