Lamphear, Vivian Shaw
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v9 n2 p251-63 1985
A review of 17 of the most current empirical research studies on the pscyhosocial adjustment of maltreated children suggests that, compared to nonabused children, physically abused children manifest a greater number and frequency of behavior problems, have poor peer relationships and social skills, are less socially involved, have less empathy, and manifest poor school adjustment and academic performance.
