Self-Perceptions, Motivation, and School Functioning of Low-Income Maltreated and Comparison Children.
Barnett, Douglas; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n5 p397-410 May 1996
This study examined the impact of child maltreatment and age on 76 school children living in poverty. Both maltreated and nonmaltreated children exhibited maladaptive motivational orientation toward academic work, suggesting that threats to scholastic functioning reside more within the ecology of poverty than in maltreatment. Age differences were found in maltreated and nonmaltreated children's self-perception of competence and social acceptance. (Author/PB)
