Moeller, Tamerra P.; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v17 n5 p623-40 Sep-Oct 1993
The health effects of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse during childhood were studied in 668 middle class females. Approximately 28% recounted exposure to one type of abuse, 18% to two types, and 5% to three types. Abused women reported more hospitalizations for illnesses, more physical and psychological problems, and lower overall health than nonabused women. (Author/JDD)
