Acts of Psychological Aggression against a Partner and Their Relation to Physical Assault and Gender.
Hamby, Sherry L; Sugarman, David B.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v61 n4 p959-70 Nov 1999
Male and female undergraduates completed the Revised Conflict Tactics Scales to assess whether specific acts of psychological aggression are more closely associated with physical assault than others. Results indicated that all psychological items were associated with physical assault. Only certain items reflected malicious intent and some associations were stronger for males than females. Findings have implications for defining battering syndrome. (Author/JDM)
