Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Interpersonal factors were examined in 60 couples who reported violence by male against female partner and in 60 couples who did not. Violent men reported lower partnership quality and less social support than did nonviolent men. Battered women reported lower partnership quality but more positive social support than did women with nonviolent partners. Level of violence was predicted by level of child‐rearing conflict and the availability of social support for the violent men. 1993 American Orthopsychiatric Association
