Protective Personality Characteristics among Adolescent Victims of Maltreatment.
Moran, Patricia B.; Eckenrode, John
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v16 n5 p743-54 Sep-Oct 1992
This study found that personality characteristics (including locus of control and self-esteem) of 33 maltreated adolescent females interacted with maltreatment status in predicting depression, suggesting that they are protective factors. Adolescents first experiencing maltreatment during childhood were less likely than those first experiencing maltreatment during adolescence to have these protective personality characteristics.
