de Paul, Joaquin; Domenech, Leticia
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v24 n5 p701-13 May 2000
Two matched groups (24 adolescents and 24 adults) of pregnant mothers were followed for 20 months. During pregnancy, memories of child maltreatment were evaluated. Although adolescent and adult mothers showed no differences in memories of childhood physical or emotional abuse, adolescent mothers and physically abused mothers showed higher child abuse potential and depression scores than other mothers.
