SEPULVEDA GARCIA DE LA TORRE, A.. Gender Violence as cause of Child Abuse. Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2006, n.43-44, pp.149-164. ISSN 1988-611X.

Violence against women or gender-based violence is receiving more social and institutional attention in Spain, culminating in the Organic Law 1/2004, December 28th, of Integral Protection Measures Against Gender-based Violence. It has been demonstrated that the exhibition to gender-based violence in the domestic area is a cause of negative effects on sons and daughters of female victims as well, whatever the age of children, who can suffer the violence in a direct way, through physical or psychical abuse, or indirectly, being witnesses of violent acts whose mothers are victims. In the present work, we exposed the repercussions on evolutionary, emotional, cognitive and social development of children by being witnesses of violence towards their mothers, as well as the intergenerational transmission of violent behaviours.

Palavras-chave : Family violence; Gender violence; child abuse.
