Controlling for Selection Effects in the Relationship between Child Behavior Problems and Exposure to Intimate Partner Violence
Emery, Clifton R.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v26 n8 p1541-1558 May 2011
This article used the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) data to examine the relationship between exposure to intimate partner violence (IPV) and child behavior problems (externalizing and internalizing), truancy, grade repetition, smoking, drinking, and use of marijuana. Longitudinal data analysis was conducted on 1,816 primary caregivers and their children. Fixed-effects regression models were employed to address concerns with selection bias. IPV was associated with significantly greater internalizing behavior, externalizing behavior, and truancy. Findings from age interaction models suggested that the relationship between IPV and child behavior problems may attenuate as the age of the child at time of exposure increases. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
