Family Functioning in Neglectful Families.
Gaudin, James M., Jr.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n4 p363-77 Apr 1996
Comparison of family functioning in 103 neglectful and 102 nonneglectful low-income families found that neglectful mothers reported their families as having more family conflict and less expression of feelings, but not less cohesiveness. Observational measures indicated neglectful families were less organized, more chaotic, and less verbally expressive, and showed less positive affect than comparison families. (Author/DB)
