Fiche synthèse

1. Objectifs


Intentions :
« This paper therefore first establishes the sociodemographic differences and similarities between three groups in which violence is observed: one group in which there is spousal violence, one in which there is parental violence, and one in which the two forms of violence co-occur. It also seeks to better document the factors involved in the different types of family violence by developing an explanatory model of cooccurrence. » (p. 664)

3. Résumé


« The results of this study provide a more complete picture of the co-occurrence of spousal and parental violence within the same family. In line with other studies, the results indicate that the reality of this situation is not qualitatively different from those of other forms of family violence, but that there are quantitative differences between the factors associated with its co-occurrence (Shipman et al. 1999; Trickett 1998). These differences highlight the greater vulnerability of these families and the social isolation of the mothers. These different findings have a number of implications for research, and especially for agencies, organizations and researchers who still do not consider these two realities to be related. » (p. 672)
