LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF FATHER-DAUGHTER INCEST

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

A series of retrospective studies on long-term effects of father-daughter
incest focused on the quality of relationships in the incestuous family of
origin in relation to difficulties incest victims experience in their
subsequent relationships in adulthood. Across studies, a history of
father-daughter incest, particularly when the mother was emotionally
distant from the victim, was associated consistently with problem in the
incest survivor's relationship in her adulthood, specifically in developing
intimacy and trust with partners, and confidence and consistent autonomy-
promoting child-rearing strategies with children.
