Child abuse, neglect, and adult behavior: research design and findings on criminality, violence, and child abuse



Child abuse, neglect, and adult behavior: research design and findings on criminality, violence, and child abuse



American Journal of Orthopsychiatry 59(3): 355-367



Using a prospective cohorts design, a large sample of physical and sexual abuse cases was compared to a matched control group. Overall, abused and neglected subjects had higher rates than did controls for adult criminality and arrests for violent offenses, but not for adult arrests for child abuse or neglect. Findings are discussed in the context of intergenerational transmission of violence, and directions for future research are suggested.
