Chaffin, Mark; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n3 p191-203 Mar 1996
Data from the National Institute for Mental Health's Epidemiologic Catchment Areas Survey followed 7,103 parents who denied physical abuse/neglect of their children in Wave I but admitted it in Wave II, 1 year later. Social and demographic variables were limited predictors of maltreatment, while substance abuse disorders and depression were strongly associated with the onset of abuse/neglect. (Author/DB)
