The Role of Parental Stress in Physically Abusive Families.
Whipple, Ellen E.; Webster-Stratton, Carolyn
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v15 n3 p279-91 1991
A study of 123 families examined the role of parental stress in physically abusive and nonabusive families with conduct-disordered children. Parental stress was found to play an important role in abusive families. Physically abusive families were found to have lower incomes, younger mothers with less education, a history of child abuse, and more likelihood of alcohol or drug abuse. (BRM)
