Long-Term Effects of Incestuous Child Abuse in College Women: Social Adjustment, Social Cognition, and Family Characteristics.
Harter, Stephanie; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v56 n1 p5-8 Feb 1988
Investigated family and social cognitive characteristics as mediators of social adjustment among college women. Indicated decreased cohesion and adaptability in the family of origin, increased perception of social isolation, and poorer social adjustment among subjects abused as children. Family characteristics and especially increased perceptions of social isolation were more predictive of social maladjustment than abuse per se. (Author/KS)
