Power and Violence: The Relation between Communication Patterns, Power Discrepancies, and Domestic Violence.
Babcock, Julia C.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v61 n1 p40-50 Feb 1993
Examined discrepancies in economic status, decision-making power, communication patterns, and communication skill in three groups of spouses (n=95): domestically violent, maritally distressed/nonviolent, and maritally happy/nonviolent. Domestically violent couples were more likely than nonviolent groups to engage in husband-demand/wife-withdraw interactions. Violent husbands who had less power were more physically abusive toward their wives. (Author/NB)
