Straus, Murray A.; Kantor, Glenda Kaufman
Adolescence, v29 n115 p543-61 Fall 1994
Studied large national sample of U.S. adults, finding that almost one-half recalled having been corporally punished during adolescence. Data analysis revealed that children who experienced corporal punishment in adolescence had increased risk later in life of depressive symptoms, suicidal thoughts, alcohol abuse, physical abuse of children, and wife beating.
