New Research on the Intergenerational Transmission of Abuse
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 / 3-4:30 EST
Content: The “cycle of violence” hypothesis is deeply engrained in the domestic violence movement and is often invoked without a solid understanding of the limitations and challenges involved with testing this hypothesis. As such, this webinar will provide a methodological review and critique of the ‘Intergenerational Transmission of Violence’ literature. It will also discuss findings from a 20-year study on life course and intergenerational continuity of intimate partner aggression and physical injury. Implications and future research directions will be discussed.
Presenters: Megan Haselschwerdt, Assistant Professor of Child and Family Studies, University of Tennessee at Knoxville; Dr. Kelly Knight, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at Montana State University
