Fox, Kathleen M.; Gilbert, Brenda O.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n10 p849-58 Oct 1994
Questionnaires assessing childhood physical abuse, childhood incest, and parental alcoholism were completed by 253 college women. Analysis of level of depression; self-esteem; and involvement with physically abusive, sexually assaultive, sexually coercive, and chemically dependent partners revealed support for an additive model of trauma that predicts a relationship between number of childhood traumas and adult outcomes.
