The Link Between Childhood Maltreatment and Teenage Pregnancy.
Smith, Carolyn
Social Work Research, v20 n3 p131-40 Sep 1996
Investigates the conceptual and empirical links between early experiences of maltreatment and later teenage pregnancy in a representative sample of 249 teenage women (Rochester Youth Development Study). Data indicate significantly higher pregnancy rates among teenagers with a maltreatment history and seems more pronounced for those with a range of maltreatment experiences. Implications of the findings are discussed. (LSR)
