Attitudes toward Physical Discipline as a Function of Disciplinary History and Self-Labeling as Physically Abused.
Bower, Mary E.; Knutson, John F.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n8 p689-99 Aug 1996
University undergraduates (n=207) reported a diverse range of childhood disciplinary history and their perceptions regarding that history. Analysis indicated that, among those with severely punitive histories, individuals who did not label themselves as abused were less likely to classify events as physically abusive than those who labeled themselves as abused.
