Chaffin, Mark; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n2 p227-40 Feb 1997
Coping strategies used by 84 sexually abused children ages 7-12 were evaluated along with related symptoms and factors. Avoidance behavior was associated with fewer behavioral problems but greater sexual anxiety. Internalization was associated with increased guilt, and active/social coping was associated with no symptoms or benefits. Expressive anger was linked to a wide range of behavioral and emotional problems. (Author/PB)
