The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Poverty and Chronic Child Abuse.

Kruttschnitt, Candace and Jane McLeod.

The relationship between persistent poverty and the severity and chronicity of child abuse is explored in a 1992 study of 315 cases in Ramsey County. It was found that both the length of time spent in poverty and the depth of poverty contribute to an increased possibility that there will be chronic sexual abuse.
