The Maltreatment of Adolescents.
Powers, Jane Levine; Eckenrode, John
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v12 n2 p189-99 1988
Analysis of about 2,000 official reports of maltreatment of children and adolescents found that substantiation of sexual abuse was more likely with adolescents, but that neglect and physical abuse reports were less likely to be substantiated with adolescents. White adolescents were underrepresented, and Black adolescents were overrepresented. (Author/DB)
