Hotte, Jean-Pierre; Rafman, Sandra
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n2 p273-83 1992
Analysis of the cases of 57 girls, aged 8-14, from multiproblem families, half of whom had experienced incest, found no differences on global measures, but girls who had experienced incest had significantly lower self-esteem, more troubled relationships with their mothers, more sexualized attitudes and behaviors, and more aggression turned inward on themselves.
