Predicting Rejection of Her Infant from Mother's Representation of Her Own Experiences: Implications for the Abused-Abusing Intergenerational Cycle.
Main, Mary; Goldwyn, Ruth
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v8 n2 p203-17 1984
Child-battering parents are described in the literature as having three primary behavioral characteristics: a general difficulty with the control of aggression; an aversive, unsympathetic response to distress in others; and self-isolating tendencies. Recent studies of young abused children are reviewed which show the development of similar behavioral characteristics as early as 1-3 years of age. (Author/DB)
