Is there a female cycle of violence after exposure to childhood maltreatment? A meta-analysis.

Psychol Med 2019 Apr 17:1-11. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Psychology,University of Zurich,Switzerland.

Several studies have demonstrated a vicious cycle of violence, in which experiences of childhood maltreatment (CM) transition into later perpetration of aggressive acts. But evidence for the presence of this cycle in adult women is mixed. The aim of this meta-analysis is to investigate the strength of associations and the mechanisms underlying a cycle of violence in women. Read More

Gene-environment interactions in antisocial behavior are mediated by early-life 5-HT receptor activation.

Neuropharmacology 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Dept. of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA; Consortium for Translational Research on Aggression and Drug Abuse (ConTRADA), University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS, USA. Electronic address:

The ontogeny of antisocial behavior (ASB) is rooted in complex gene-environment (G×E) interactions. The best-characterized of these interplays occurs between: a) low-activity alleles of the gene encoding monoamine oxidase A (MAOA), the main serotonin-degrading enzyme; and b) child maltreatment. The purpose of this study was to develop the first animal model of this G×E interaction, to help understand the neurobiological mechanisms of ASB and identify novel targets for its therapy.

Neurobiol Stress 2019 Feb 27;10:100140. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School, USA.

Research on the inter-relationship between drug abuse and social stress has primarily focused on the role of stress exposure during adulthood and more recently, adolescence. Adolescence is a time of heightened reward sensitivity, but it is also a time when earlier life experiences are expressed. Exposure to stress early in postnatal life is associated with an accelerated age of onset for drug use. Read More

Females who maltreat animals.

Behav Sci Law 2018 Nov;36(6):752-765

Saint Louis University School of Medicine.

Studies of animal maltreatment and of untoward or abnormal aggression predominantly involve male subjects, raising the question as to whether females who engage in such behaviors are like, or fundamentally different than, their male counterparts. Inquiry to address this issue could pertain to gender similarities and differences; moreover, it could provide greater understanding of the behavior itself, in this case, animal maltreatment. Of the various patterns of animal maltreatment in the literature, there are enough studies with gender addressed to allow some observations on two patterns: animal cruelty in childhood and animal hoarding.

Investigating multilevel pathways of developmental consequences of maltreatment.

Dev Psychopathol 2018 Nov 14:1-10. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Institute of Child Development,University of Minnesota-Twin Cities,Minneapolis,MN,USA.

The impact of maltreatment spreads across many developmental domains and extends across the entire life span. Identifying unidirectional or bidirectional drivers of developmental cascades of the effects of maltreatment experiences is critical to efficiently employing interventions to promote resilient development in maltreated children. This 1-year longitudinal study utilized a multiple-levels approach, investigating "bottom-up" and "top-down" cascades using structural equation modeling between cortisol regulation, externalizing behavior, and peer aggression.

Predictors of change in mothers' and fathers' parent-child aggression risk.

Child Abuse Negl 2018 Dec 28;86:247-256. Epub 2018 Oct 28.

University of Alabama at Birmingham, United States.

Parents' cognitive schemas about parenting, personal vulnerabilities, and personal resources may affect their risk of engaging in parent-child aggression (PCA). This longitudinal study examined predictors of change in mothers' and fathers' PCA risk across the transition to parenthood, comparing trajectories of parents evidencing high versus low sociodemographic risk. Potential predictors involved parenting-relevant schemas (consistent with Social Information Processing theory, including approval of PCA, negative attributions of child behavior, and knowledge of nonphysical discipline options), personal vulnerabilities (psychopathology, intimate partner violence, substance use issues), and resources (problem-focused coping, emotion regulation, social support, and partner satisfaction).

Maternal depression, maltreatment history, and child outcomes: The role of harsh parenting.

Am J Orthopsychiatry 2019 10;89(2):181-191. Epub 2018 Sep 10.

Department of Family and Child Sciences.

The link between maternal depression and negative child outcomes has been well-established; however, less is known regarding the impact of harsh parenting on child outcomes, especially for women living with depressive symptoms and whom also experienced child maltreatment. The purpose of this study was to examine harsh parenting practices as a mediator in this known association, in order to examine factors associated with negative child outcomes and to explore a reduction in future transmission of risk. Mediation analyses were conducted with 2 samples of mother-child dyads at separate time points (child age 6: = 325; and youth age 12: = 213) using data collected from the Longitudinal Studies of Child Abuse and Neglect.

Tobacco and cannabis use in college students are predicted by sex-dimorphic interactions between MAOA genotype and child abuse.

CNS Neurosci Ther 2019 Jan 27;25(1):101-111. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Consortium for Translational Research on Aggression and Drug Abuse (ConTRADA), University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS, USA.

Background: Postsecondary students in Western countries exhibit a high prevalence of cannabis and tobacco use disorders. The etiology of these problems is contributed by several psychosocial factors, including childhood adversity and trauma; however, the mechanisms whereby these environmental determinants predispose to the use of these substances remain elusive, due to our poor knowledge of genetic and biological moderators. Converging evidence points to the monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) gene as a moderator of the effects of lifetime stress on the initiation of substance use. Read More

Given the association between child maltreatment and a host of negative behavioral consequences, there remains a need to continue to identify mechanisms underlying this association as a means of improving intervention efforts. The present study examined one potential mechanism, namely, disengagement coping. We asked 6- to 17-year-old maltreated ( n = 249) and comparison ( n = 133) youth questions about emotional experiences that induced sadness and anger, strategies they used to cope with those emotions, and behavioral functioning (i.

Reductions of intimate partner violence resulting from supplementing children with omega-3 fatty acids: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, stratified, parallel-group trial.

Aggress Behav 2018 May 20. Epub 2018 May 20.

Section on Nutritional Neuroscience, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, Bethesda, Maryland.

Omega-3 supplementation has been found to reduce externalizing behavior in children. Reciprocal models of parent-child behavior suggest that improving child behavior could lead to improvements in parent behavior, however no study has examined whether omega-3 supplementation in children could reduce intimate partner violence or child maltreatment by their adult caregivers. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, stratified, parallel group trial, a community sample of children were randomized to receive either a fruit drink containing 1 gm of omega-3 fats (Smartfish Recharge; Omega-3 group, n = 100) or the same fruit drink without omega-3's (Placebo group, n = 100).

Exposure to Family Violence and Internalizing and Externalizing Problems Among Spanish Adolescents.

Violence Vict 2018 04;33(2):368-382

Exposure to intimate partner violence (IPV) and child maltreatment may have devastating consequences on children's development. The aim of this research was to examine the predictive associations between exposure to violence at home (witnessing violence against the mother and/or direct victimization by the parents) and adolescent internalizing and externalizing problems. A total of 613 Spanish adolescents (13-18 years) took part in this study. Read More

Braiding Two Evidence-based Programs for Families at-risk: Results of a Cluster Randomized Trial.

J Child Fam Stud 2018 Feb 20;27(2):535-546. Epub 2017 Dec 20.

Atlanta, GA.

Child maltreatment is a significant public health problem best addressed through evidence-based parent-support programs. There is a wide range of programs with different strengths offering a variety of options for families. Choosing one single evidence-based program often limits the range of services available to meet the unique needs of families. Read More

Teen Pregnancy Risk Factors Among Young Women of Diverse Sexual Orientations.

Pediatrics 2018 04 12;141(4). Epub 2018 Mar 12.

Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

Objectives: Young women who are sexual minorities (eg, bisexual and lesbian) are approximately twice as likely as those who are heterosexual to have a teen pregnancy. Therefore, we hypothesized that risk factors for teen pregnancy would vary across sexual orientation groups and that other potential risk factors exist that are unique to sexual minorities.

Methods: We used multivariable log-binomial models gathered from 7120 young women in the longitudinal cohort known as the Growing Up Today Study to examine the following potential teen pregnancy risk factors: childhood maltreatment, bullying victimization and perpetration, and gender nonconformity.

Battered child syndrome in the records of the Department of Forensic Medicine, Medical University of Białystok.

Arch Med Sadowej Kryminol 2017;67(3):153-165

Violence against children has been until now recognised as physical aggression escalating from corporal punishment, hard physical labour to homicide. Nowadays child abuse is considered as maltreatment occurring in four different aspects: physical abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse and neglect. Child abuse is difficult to disclose, as it is concealed both by the perpetrators and the victims. Read More

Does childhood neglect contribute to violent behavior in adulthood? A review of possible links.

Clin Psychol Rev 2018 03 9;60:126-135. Epub 2018 Feb 9.

The University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Child neglect, whether intentional or unintentional on the part of caregivers, has serious and far-reaching negative consequences for children. Neglect is the most prevalent form of child maltreatment and has been associated with impaired cognitive development, changes in brain structure and nervous systems, behavioral and personality disorders and poor academic performance. However, the role of child neglect, and subtypes of neglect, in the development of adult violent behavior is not well understood. Read More

Differentiating corporal punishment from physical abuse in the prediction of lifetime aggression.

Aggress Behav 2018 May 10;44(3):306-315. Epub 2018 Feb 10.

Department of Psychology, University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Corporal punishment and parental physical abuse often co-occur during upbringing, making it difficult to differentiate their selective impacts on psychological functioning. Associations between corporal punishment and a number of lifetime aggression indicators were examined in this study after efforts to control the potential influence of various forms of co-occurring maltreatment (parental physical abuse, childhood sexual abuse, sibling abuse, peer bullying, and observed parental violence). College students (N = 1,136) provided retrospective self-reports regarding their history of aggression and levels of exposure to childhood corporal punishment and maltreatment experiences. Read More

Are emotions controllable? Maltreated and non-maltreated youth's implicit beliefs about emotion and aggressive tendencies.

Child Abuse Negl 2018 03;77:222-231

University of California, Irvine, Department of Psychology and Social Behavior, 4201 SBSG, Irvine, CA 92697, United States. Electronic address:

Although child maltreatment places youth at substantial risk for difficulties with emotion regulation and aggression, not all maltreated youth show these adverse effects, raising important questions about characteristics that discriminate those who do versus do not evidence long-term negative outcomes. The present investigation examined whether implicit beliefs about emotion moderated the association between maltreatment and aggression. Maltreated (n = 59) and community-matched (n = 66) youth were asked regarding their beliefs about emotion and aggressive behaviors. Read More

Maternal negative emotional expression and discipline in Beijing, China: The moderating role of educational attainment.

Child Abuse Negl 2018 03 3;77:58-66. Epub 2018 Jan 3.

Beijing Key Laboratory of Learning and Cognition, School of Psychology, Capital Normal University, Beijing, China.

The current study shows that parental punitive discipline places children at risk of developing internalizing and externalizing problems. Although some studies have analyzed the reasons for the use of discipline methods, little to no research has analyzed the moderating effects. In this study, we examine the relationship between maternal negative emotional expression and mothers' use of disciplinary methods (psychological aggression, corporal punishment and physical maltreatment) and the moderating effects of educational attainment in Chinese societies.

Aggression in Children Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence: A Comparison of Maternal, Sibling, and Observer Perspectives.

J Interpers Violence 2017 Nov 1:886260517741624. Epub 2017 Nov 1.

1 University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada.

The negative effects of exposure to intimate partner violence (IPV) on children have been well documented, including externalizing difficulties such as aggression. Although aggressive behavior is a common concern for these children, sibling aggression in children exposed to IPV has rarely been studied. Our purpose was to investigate similarities and differences in multiple informant reports of aggression by siblings exposed to IPV, and to examine how exposure to IPV was linked to these differing perspectives.

Quality of Sibling Relationships in Maltreated Youth Residing in Out-of-Home-Care.

J Interpers Violence 2017 Sep 1:886260517730562. Epub 2017 Sep 1.

2 University of California, Irvine, CA, USA.

When children are removed from their parents's custody because of substantiated maltreatment and placed in out-of-home placements, they may be placed separately from siblings, potentially leading to even higher levels of stress in children. This possibility emerges insofar as siblings serve as a source of support during the uncertain times that accompany maltreatment and subsequent removal. We explored these issues in the present study, focusing on whether sibling relationship quality was related to post-removal behavioral functioning in maltreated children and adolescents. Read More

Young Adults Victimized as Children or Adolescents: Relationships Between Perpetrator Patterns, Poly-Victimization, and Mental Health Problems.

J Interpers Violence 2017 Apr 1:886260517701452. Epub 2017 Apr 1.

4 University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA.

Child and adolescent victims of violence are often exposed to more than one kind of physical, sexual, or emotional maltreatment. Both individually and cumulatively, such victimizations have significant ramifications on mental health. Yet little is known about the relationships in which these different kinds of victimizations occur and how the relationship between the victim and perpetrators may influence later mental health.

J Interpers Violence 2017 Jan 1:886260516683174. Epub 2017 Jan 1.

5 Boston University, MA, USA.

Previous research has indicated that childhood maltreatment is predictive of psychiatric symptoms in adulthood. Among the potential intervening factors in this relationship are affective reactions in the victims, neurodevelopmental problems, and resilience. The purpose of this study was to test, in a nonclinical low-risk sample, an integrative developmentally based psychoneurological model of the roles of limbic system dysfunction, shame and guilt, and resiliency as potential intervening variables between childhood maltreatment and adult psychiatric symptoms.

Psychopathy in detained boys: The search for primary and secondary variants in a clinical setting.

Personal Disord 2018 09 14;9(5):408-419. Epub 2017 Dec 14.

School of Law, Psychology and Social Work, Center for Criminological and Psychosocial Research, Örebro University.

This study investigates whether primary and secondary variants of psychopathy can be identified in an applied, forensic setting based on self-reports of psychopathy and anxiety. Data were available for two samples of detained boys (Sample A: N = 847, Sample B: N = 749). Using three psychopathy dimensions and anxiety as clustering variables, latent profile analysis arrived at 4 latent classes (LCs) that were tentatively labeled as control (LC1), high anxiety (LC2), moderate psychopathy (LC3), and high psychopathy (LC4).
