Manion, Ian G.; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v20 n11 p1095-1109 Nov 1996
This study examined the adjustment of 93 parents within 3 months of the disclosure of extrafamilial sexual abuse of their children in comparison with a nonclinical group of 136 parents. Parents, especially mothers, of sexually abused children experienced greater overall emotional distress, poorer family functioning, and lower satisfaction in their parenting role. (DB)
