Battered Children Grown Up: A Follow-Up Study of Individuals Severely Maltreated as Children.
Martin, Judith A.; Elmer, Elizabeth
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n1 p75-87 1992
A follow-up study was conducted of the adult functioning of 19 people who were severely battered as young children. Results indicated highly variable outcomes. Little evidence of overt aggression was found, but resentment and suspiciousness scores were high. Findings indicate that early abusive trauma and adult functioning have no simple relationship. (BRM)
