A search in PsycInfo, the largest database for psychology, available
in most college and university libraries, for research done by Joan L.
Jackson, University of Georgia, finds 16 citations from 1977-2003. You
can find these articles in nearby college and university libraries or
possibly your public library, and I include ways to do this near the
end of this answer.
She began her professional publishing career researching "cognitive
self-instructional training of preschool children" and did her PhD
dissertation on this in 1978. Jackson began researching childhood
family sexual abuse in 1990 and this has remained her main area of
research since, publishing articles in journals such as Archives of
Sexual Behavior, Journal of Family Violence, Journal of Interpersonal
Violence, Child Abuse & Neglect, and Journal of Child Sexual Abuse.
So Jackson's research focus does involve families that are
dysfunctional, and though most of her articles are given the PsycInfo
Subject Heading of "child sexual abuse," one is classified in
"dysfunctional parenting" and one in "dysfunctional family patterns"
(the "DE" tags in the citations below are PsycInfo "Descriptor" or

As PsycInfo also indexes books and book chapters, apparently Jackson
has not as yet published in book form. You can find these articles in
nearby college and university libraries, and in some public library
databases. You can find which databases include a particular journal
by using these two search tools, then see if your academic or public
libraries have these databases:
