Traumatic Childhood Events, Perceived Availability of Emotional Support, and the Development of Dissociative Tendencies.
Irwin, Harvey J.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n8 p701-07 Aug 1996
A nonclinical sample of Australian adults (n=239) was surveyed for the incidence of traumatic childhood events, availability of emotional support, and the presence of a dissociative coping style. Findings suggested that lack of emotional support is an important mediator, but not a primary cause of the development of dissociative tendencies. (Author/DB)
