Child Sexual Abuse: The Female Victim's Relationship with Her Nonoffending Mother.
Lovett, Beverly B.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v19 n6 p729-38 Jun 1995
Interviews with 60 female victims (ages 7-12) of sexual abuse found that most viewed relationships with their mothers as warm and accepting. Girls who perceived lower maternal rejection had higher competency ratings and fewer behavior problems. Abuse involving force was correlated with lower victim competency. More violent abuse was correlated with externalizing behavior problems and sexual behavior problems. (Author/DB)
