Parish, Ruth Ann; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v9 n2 p245-50 1985
Of 53 abused children (two-five years old) tested before and after involvement in a program emphasizing therapy-group interaction for parents and daily preschool classes for children, 42 children showed greater-than-expected developmental gains. It is concluded that such a program which focuses on parent-child interaction appears to be effective in dealing with abusive families. (Author/CL)
