Leifer, Myra; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v17 n6 p755-66 Nov-Dec 1993
This study investigated the impact of the nonoffending mother's childhood history and current functioning upon the psychological status and placement decisions for 68 sexually abused black girls. Maternal substance abuse and dissatisfaction with social support were significantly associated with lack of maternal support to the child, more abuse incidents, and placement in foster care. (DB)
