We were like the audience: impacts on young adults who grew up in families with domestic violence and principles for psychotherapy with young adult survivors

Professor Ione Lewis

The impacts of domestic violence on children have been well established by researchers. Children who witness violence against their mother or parent may be physically abused if they intervene. The parenting skills of mothers who are victims of domestic violence are reduced, which creates a secondary vulnerability for children. The longer term impacts on young adults have not been well described in research evidence or clinical presentations. This exploratory paper uses a case study methodology to draw out principles for psychotherapy. Young adult survivors of domestic violence view their parents as emotionally absent.
