Abstract

This study of low-income, single mothers suggests that severity of depression conditions the relationship between depression and three types of mother-to-child aggression. Compared to nondepressed mothers, moderately but not severely depressed women are more likely to be physically violent, and both moderately and severely depressed women are at increased risk for high frequencies of verbal/symbolic aggression.
