Physical and Sexual Abuse in Runaway Youths.
Stiffman, Arlene Rubin
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v13 n3 p417-26 1989
This paper examined the extent of physical and sexual abuse among runaway youths (N=291) and the association of that abuse with behavior, mental health, life events, and parental mental health. Almost half the youths reported a history of abuse, and the simple existence of abuse impacted on self-esteem and overall behavior problems regardless of other family problems. (Author/PB)
