Maltreated Infants: Vulnerability and Resilience.
Crittenden, Patricia M.
Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, v26 n1 p85-96 Jan 1985
Offers evidence supporting a model of bidirectional effects: the mother initiates maltreatment, but both mother and infant sustain the situation by their behaviors. Maltreated infants did not differ from controls in congenital characteristics, but displayed deviance in learned behavior patterns. Infants showed behavioral improvement after intervention with mothers. (Author/AS)
