Traumatic Responding in Children Exposed to Domestic Violence: A Cross-Cultural Study.
Lehmann, Peter; Elliston, Ellen J.
Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work, v10 n4 p81-102 2001
A study examined posttraumatic stress disorder in Mexican, Mexican American, and non-Mexican American children exposed to domestic violence. Surveys of 68 mothers with children in shelters in Mexico and Texas revealed no ethnic differences in children's overall trauma symptoms. Mothers' experience of physical and sexual abuse predicted greater trauma responses in children. Implications for staff training and client education are discussed. (Contains 75 references.) (TD)
