Family Violence and Parent Psychopathology: Implications for Children’s Socioemotional Development and Resilience

Abstract

Family violence, which refers to child maltreatment and intimate partner violence, is a widespread problem in the United States. In 2009, the most recent year for which figures are available, 702,000 children were found to be victims of maltreatment, including physical, sexual, and psychological abuse, and neglect (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2010). A survey of 16,000 men and women in the United States found that the lifetime prevalence of intimate partner violence was 17% and approximately 1.3 million women and 834,732 men had been the victims of partner violence in the 12 months prior to the survey (Tjaden & Thoennes, 2000). Worldwide, the lifetime prevalence of intimate partner violence ranges from 15 to 71% (Garcia-Moreno, Jansen, Ellsberg, Heise, & Watts, 2006).
