Basta, Samuel M.; Peterson, Robert F.
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v14 n4 p555-66 1990
The study contrasted personality and intellectual characteristics of 3 groups of 16 children: a group molested by a teacher, a molested by a family member, and a nonmolested control group. There were few differences between the two molested groups or between boys and girls. Significant differences were found between molested and unmolested children. (Author/DB)
