Adolescent Abuse and the Development of Personal Sense of Control.
Galambos, Nancy L.; Dixon, Roger A.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v8 n3 p285-93 1984
The link between adolescent abuse, (both long- and short-term), psychological functioning, and locus of control orientation is explored. Maltreated adolescents experience low self-esteem, antisocial behavior, and suicidal tendencies. It is argued that locus of control orientation, deriving from home experiences may determine the extent of problematic behavior and personal maladjustment. (Author/CL)
