dc.description.abstractA study of 34 pregnant adolescents was conducted to examine whether Child Abuse Potential Inventory (CAPI) scores could be predicted from measures of self-worth, social support, and age. The Self-Perception Profile for Adolescents (Harter, 1989) was utilized to measure selfworth, and the Family Support Scale (Dunst, Jenkins, & Trivette, 1984) was chosen as the social support instrument. A descriptive correlational research design was used to test the hypothesis that child abuse potential would be negatively related to perceived self-worth, perceived social support, and age. Only self-worth was a significant predictor of CAPI scores. Instrument subscales were examined for correlations between self-perceptions in specific domains and components of the Child Abuse Potential Inventory. significant correlations between total CAPI scores and perceived social acceptance and romantic appeal were found. Results of this study indicate that perceptions of self-worth and social acceptance may be related to parenting in similar samples.en_US
