Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v14 n3 p365-73 1990
Physical or sexual abuse cases were analyzed to estimate the frequency and severity of child abuse committed by 1,165 individuals in nonparental caregiving roles. While caregiver age did not have a consistent effect on occurrence of physical abuse, notable differences between adolescents and adults were found in sexual abuse. (Author/JDD)
