The Effect of Child Physical Abuse and Neglect on Aggressive, Withdrawn, and Prosocial Behavior.
Prino, Claudia T.; Peyrot, Mark
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v18 n10 p871-84 Oct 1994
This study investigated aggressive, withdrawn, and prosocial behavior in 21 physically abused, 26 nonabused-neglected, and 21 nonabused-nonneglected children, ages 5-8. No single dimension adequately discriminated children in each of the three groups. Full discrimination was achieved only when aggressive, withdrawn, and prosocial behaviors were combined in a multivariate analysis, indicating that the effects of maltreatment are multidimensional.
