Editorial: Dissociation in Pre-School Children.
Jones, David P. H.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v25 n9 p1249-51 Sep 2001
This editorial comments on a study that compared the self-development of 43 typical preschool children and 155 preschool children who had been maltreated. It found sexually abused, physically abused, and neglected preschool children showed more dissociation than did the typical children. Clinically identifiable dissociation was particularly associated with physical abuse. (Contains seven references.) (Author/CR)
