Walton, Joan Riley; Nuttall, Ronald L.; Nuttall, Ena Vazquez
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n8 p737-49 Aug 1997
A study of 54 Salvadoran children (age 12), born in the Salvadoran Civil War, found the personal/social impact of the war was more important than family togetherness or war intensity in determining the mental health of the children. Children's intelligence was highly related to surviving with greater mental health. (Author/CR)
