Child Witnesses of Parent Intimate Partner Violence: Associations with Child Depression, Anxiety and Social Withdrawal

Most studies compare the well being of children who witness intimate partner violence (IPV) to children whose parents did not engage in IPV. We will examine data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing study (N = 4,898), a longitudinal study of families at high risk for poverty and relationship dissolution, to determine whether the children of parents reporting higher levels of IPV over nine years would have higher levels of anxiety, depression and social withdrawal. Then, we will examine whether children who witnessed the inter-parental IPV had exacerbated psychopathology compared to children who do not witness the IPV.
