Domestic Violence, Personal Control, and Gender.
Umberson, Debra; Anderson, Kristin; Glick, Jennifer; Shapiro, Adam
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v60 n2 p442-52 May 1998
Explores how domestic violence is related to personal control. Finds that individuals who have initiated violence against a partner do not differ from individuals who have nonviolent relationships in feelings of personal control. Experiencing violence at the hands of a partner has more significant adverse effects on sense of personal control for women than for men. (Author/MKA)
