The Prospective Assessment of Self-Concept in Neglectful and Physically Abusive Low Income Mothers.
Christensen, Myra J.; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n3 p225-32 Mar 1994
Pregnant women completed the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale, and protective service records were reviewed three years later. Of 459 women, 29 had maltreated their children. Neglectful mothers had lower scores on self-esteem, moral self-worth, and personal and social adequacy than nonreported mothers. Both neglectful and physically abusive mothers had lower scores on self-worth in family relationships. (Author/JDD)
