Child Maltreatment: Testing the Social Isolation Hypothesis.
Coohey, Carol
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n3 p241-54 Mar 1996
This paper examines the construct of social isolation in child maltreatment and reports on a study comparing 300 maltreating and nonmaltreating low-income mothers. Considerable variation was found between the two groups' structural network properties, perception of support, and types of resources received. However, maltreating mothers were not truly socially isolated. (Author/DB)
