Toward an Integrated Framework for Understanding Child Physical Abuse.
Coohey, Carol; Braun, Norman
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n11 p1081-94 Nov 1997
This study tested a conceptual framework of child physical abuse based on three major determinants of abuse: exposure to aggression, exposure to stressors, and access to resources. The study of 81 physically abusive and 148 nonabusive mothers found that being abused by one's own mother and exposure to domestic violence as an adult were the best predictors of abuse. (DB)
