Relations among Childhood Memory, a History of Abuse, Dissociation, and Repression.
Melchert, Timothy P.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v14 n11 p1172-92 Nov 1999
Examines the relationships between history of child abuse, recovered abuse memories, childhood memory in general, repression, and dissociation with a sample of undergraduate students (N=560). General quality of childhood memory was found to be unrelated to a history of abuse. Repressive personality traits were unrelated to recovering abuse memories, but dissociative traits were weakly associated with recovering abuse memories. (Author/MKA)
