Battered Women's Views of Their Children.
Stephens, Debra Lynn
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v14 n7 p731-46 Jul 1999
Investigates why some caretakers act to protect their children from domestic violence while others show passivity. Two themes emerged through interviews with 26 women victims of domestic violence who had children: adultification of children, and psychological traps involving the batterer's role in the children's lives. Intervention recommendations are offered for battered women and their children. (Author/JDM)
