Lopez, Molly A.; Heffer, Robert W.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v22 n3 p183-95 Mar 1998
This study examined the impact of childhood physical abuse on self-concept and social competency among 660 college students. Findings indicated that a history of physical abuse was predictive of current self-concept but did not predict social competence. Analysis suggested that physical abuse has a negative impact on self-concept through its negative effect on parent/child relationships. (DB)
