Physiological Responses to Non-Child-Related Stressors in Mothers at Risk for Child Abuse.
Casanova, Gisele M.; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n1 p31-44 1992
This study investigated changes in heart rate and skin conductance in response to four types of non-child-related stressors in mothers at risk and at low risk for physical child abuse. At-risk mothers had greater and more prolonged sympathetic activation during the most stressful presentations, supporting the view of such responses as mediators of physical child abuse. (BRM)
