Stress, Coping, and Adjustment in Female Adolescent Incest Victims.
Johnson, Bret K.; Kenkel, Mary Beth
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v15 n3 p293-305 1991
A study of 45 female adolescent incest victims in treatment found that wishful thinking, tension reduction, a lack of maternal support, appraisals of threat, and "holding self back" accounted for 70 percent of the variance in self-reported distress. Detachment, seeking social support, and appraisal of "holding self back" accounted for 38 percent of the variance in therapist ratings. (BRM)
