Child-Abusive Parents: An Empirical Review and Analysis

Studies comparing child-abusive and nonabusive parents on psychological and
behavioral dimensions are reviewed to determine relevant distinctions between
these populations. Whereas few studies found significant differences between
abusers and nonabusers on traditional psychological dimensions, abusers are more
likely to report stress-related symptoms, such as depression and health problems,
that are linked to the parenting role. Comparative studies of family interactions
have also indicated that abusers display reciprocal patterns of behavior with their
children and spouses that are proportionately more aversive and less prosocial
than nonabusers. Child abuse is viewed as an interactive process involving both
parental competence and situational demands. Attention is given to methodological
refinement and prevention efforts derived from these findings
