"Unrealistic Realities": Child Abuse and the Aesthetic Resolution.
Clair, Robin Patric; Kunkel, Adrianne W.
Communication Monographs, v65 n1 p24-46 Mar 1998
Explores the existence of multiple realities and the role they play in the social construction of suspected child abuse. Explores how the aesthetic experience acts to resolve the stress created by living a fractured state between the naturalized inclination and the simulation. Examines two narratives of former teachers relating an encounter with a child where they suspected abuse. (SR)
