Trauma History and Personal Narratives: Some Clues to Coping among Survivors of Child Abuse.
Klein, Ilene; Janoff-Bulman, Ronnie
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n1 p45-54 Jan 1996
Narrative features of the life stories of child abuse survivors (n=23) and nonvictimized college student respondents (n=23) were compared. Narratives of survivors differed from the comparison group in both relative emphasis on the past versus present/future and on others rather than self. An emphasis on others by child abuse survivors emerged as predictive of maladaptive coping. (Author/DB)
