The Measurement of Maltreatment: A Comparison of Approaches.
McGee, Robin A.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n2 p233-50 Feb 1995
This study examined the comparability and predictive validity of three approaches to measurement of child or adolescent maltreatment, involving the adolescents themselves (n=160), case file review by researchers, and protection agency social workers. Comparison of ratings across sources indicated considerable disagreement with respect to judgments of maltreatment occurrence and severity. (Author/JDD)
