Intimacy Development: The Influence of Abuse and Gender.
Ducharme, Jennifer; Koverola, Catherine; Battle, Paula
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v12 n4 p590-99 Aug 1997
Investigates the influence of childhood physical abuse and gender on intimacy. Results, based on 276 college students, indicate that nonabused respondents were significantly higher in intimacy than were abused respondents. No significant gender differences were found. Findings suggest that child abuse hinders children in forming intimate relationships later in life. (RJM)
