The Effect of Differences in Objective and Subjective Definitions of Childhood Physical Abuse on Estimates of Its Incidence and Relationship to Psychopathology.
Carlin, Albert S.; And Others
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n5 p393-99 May 1994
Analysis of questionnaire responses of 280 women found that 28.2% were objectively defined as abused as children though only 11.4% subjectively defined themselves as abused. Depression was highest (83%) among those who defined themselves as abused, intermediate (56%) among those only objectively defined as abused, and least (35%) among those not abused. (Author/DB)
