Korbin, Jill E.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v11 n3 p397-407 1987
Nine women imprisoned for fatal child maltreatment were interviewed concerning their perceptions of interactions with their children, pregnancy and childbirth, mother-child separations and reunions, child development, rejection, children's behavior, and prior child abuse. Interpretation of their children as developmentally abnormal and difficulties during reunions were identified as contributing factors. (JDD)
