Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v25 n9 p1253-67 Sep 2001
A study compared the self-development of 43 typical preschool children and 155 maltreated preschool children. Each group of sexually, physically abused, and neglected preschool children showed more dissociation than did the typical children. Clinically identifiable dissociation was particularly associated with physical abuse. Severity of maltreatment was also related to dissociation. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
