Question description

In a 3–5 page paper, describe the intergenerational transmission theory and describe why you feel it causes people to commit domestic violence. Strongly support the theory with detailed information and at least four examples.


A frequently used explanation for family violence is the intergenerational transmission theory. Abusive behavior is handed down from generation to generation as an appropriate way to deal with conflict: Violence begets violence. This does not suggest that battering tendencies are inherited; rather, they are experienced. People who observe violence in the home as children are more likely to resort to battering in their own relationships later in life. Simply put, if a child is abused, he or she learns that it is an acceptable, if not normal, way to achieve his or her goal. The child becomes an abusing adult—toward a spouse and often toward his or her own children. A cycle of abuse occurs across generations.
