by Echeverria, Nancy, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 80; 1486454
Abstract (Summary)

This content analysis explored some of the cultural characteristics of women that were exposed to intimate partner violence, symptoms and behaviors of children exposed to intimate partner violence, the relationship between families in child protective services with their child protection service worker, and some treatment interventions for children that were exposed to intimate partner violence. This content analysis reviewed 25 articles and analyzed these studies for content and themes among children and mothers impacted by violence. The findings of this content analysis found that women from different cultures have similar experiences when faced with intimate partner violence, yet differences in accessing services were found. Children that are exposed to intimate partner violence develop symptoms and behaviors that can result in internalized, externalized behaviors, and PTSD. Increase criminal involvement was also found between this population. Interventions for working with the children were also discussed.
