Ney, Philip G.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v12 n3 p363-73 1988
A model of child abuse/neglect is described, in which the perpetrator, victim, and observer all contribute to precipitating and sustaining the maltreatment. The three form a triangle which rotates with time and circumstance. There are also components of the perpetrator, victim, and observer within each individual, creating triangles within triangles.
