Owen, Patricia R.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v20 n4 p483-91 Nov 1998
A modified Children's Fear Survey Schedule was used to study 294 low and middle socioeconomic status (SES) Hispanic and Anglo children, aged 7 to 9. Girls and low-SES children reported more intense and more frequent fears. Hispanics did not differ from Anglos. Most-feared items were danger, death, and physical injury. Developmental issues and potential emotional difficulties are discussed. (SAS)
