The Long Reach of
Childhood
Maltreatment:
Associations with Adult
Propensity to Abuse a
Romantic Partner
Mary Yousif, Jessica Goletz, Sue
Brown, Carolyn Dayton
Background
• When children are exposed to maltreatment,
they are more likely to engage in aggressive
and violent behaviors as adults (Lansford, et
al., 2007)
• Angry and aggressive behaviors often
manifest during times of stress (Felson, et al.,
1992)
• Preparing to parent a new baby in the context
of poverty can lead to increased feelings of
stress and therefore increased angry and
aggressive behaviors
Background (con’t.)
• Positive self esteem may mitigate this
relationship, making maltreatment
exposed adults less likely to engage in
angry and aggressive behaviors (Garofalo,
et al., 2015)
• In this study we examine the influence of
childhood maltreatment history and
current self esteem on the propensity for
expectant parents to engage in angry,
aggressive behavior toward a romantic
partner
Baby on Board: The Wayne State
University Early Parenting Study
• 102 expectant parents – mothers and
fathers
• Investigated parenting thoughts, feelings,
and behaviors during pregnancy
• Examined risk and resilience factors
associated with the process of preparing
to parent a new baby
• Part of a larger, longitudinal study that
included bio-psycho-social data collection
• Self Report Questionnaires: 3 used in the
current analysis
Self Report
Questionnaires
• Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale
• Self-esteem; 10 items
• Childhood Trauma Questionnaire
• Physical and Emotional Abuse and
Neglect and Sexual Abuse; 28
items
• Propensity for Abusiveness Scale
• Likelihood of abusing a romantic
partner; 29 items
Results
• F(2, 90)=20.6; p=.000
B SE(B) β t Sig. (p)

0.37 0.08 0.39 4.37 .000
Self Esteem -0.81 0.22 -0.33 -3.66 .000
Discussion
• Increasing self-esteem in
expectant parents may be a
viable target of change to help
decrease propensity for abuse in
this population
• Future studies
• To understand the specific
types of childhood
maltreatment (verbal,
emotional, physical) that
contribute to the propensity
for abuse

Editor's Notes

  1. Lansford, Jennifer E et al. “Early physical abuse and later violent delinquency: a prospective longitudinal study.” Child maltreatment vol. 12,3 (2007): 233-45. doi:10.1177/1077559507301841 Felson, Richard B. “‘Kick 'Em When They're Down’: Explanations of the Relationship between Stress and Interpersonal Aggression and Violence.” The Sociological Quarterly, vol. 33, no. 1, 1992, pp. 1–16. JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/4121484. Accessed 12 Apr. 2021. Garofalo, Carlo, et al. “Understanding the Connection between Self‐Esteem and Aggression: The Mediating Role of Emotion Dysregulation.” Wiley Online Library, John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, 23 July 2015, onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/ab.21601. Rosenberg: Likert-type scale with items answered on a four-point scale – from strongly agree to strongly disagree. Five positively worded statements and five negatively worded statements. Measures self-esteem by asking the respondents to reflect on their current feelings. Childhood Trauma Questionnaire: The CTQ (Bernstein and Fink, 1998) is a 28-item scale that has been used widely in assessment of childhood trauma, including studies in schizophrenia and BPD. Six areas, such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, physical neglect, emotional abuse, emotional neglect, and minimization/denial, are considered. Propensity for Abusiveness Scale: A brief self-report scale is described that assesses propensity to abuse a romantic partner. The scale items are nonreactive, containing no explicit reference to abusive behavior. “Child maltreatment is an urgent public health problem because early physical abuse leads to later aggression and violence, in which violence begets violence” (Lansford, et al., 2007) “Stress leads persons to engage in behaviors that elicit others’ social control. This culminates in aggressive behavior, usually first by the party who feels aggrieved by and targets the distressed person.” OR this citation “Stressful life events could thus produce aggression and violence because they create negative affect.” (Felson, et al., 1992)

Six areas, such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, physical neglect, emotional abuse, emotional neglect, and minimization/denial, are considered. Propensity for Abusiveness Scale: A brief self-report scale is described that assesses propensity to abuse a romantic partner. The scale items are nonreactive, containing no explicit reference to abusive behavior. “Offenders with lower levels of self-esteem reported greater tendencies toward physical aggression, anger, and hostility.” (Garofalo, et al., 2015)
  3. Rosenberg: Likert-type scale with items answered on a four-point scale – from strongly agree to strongly disagree. Five positively worded statements and five negatively worded statements. Measures self-esteem by asking the respondents to reflect on their current feelings. Childhood Trauma Questionnaire: The CTQ (Bernstein and Fink, 1998) is a 28-item scale that has been used widely in assessment of childhood trauma, including studies in schizophrenia and BPD. FULL SCALE SCORE WAS USED IN THESE ANALYSES THAT includes Six areas: sexual abuse, physical abuse, physical neglect, emotional abuse, and emotional neglect. Propensity for Abusiveness Scale: A brief self-report scale is described that assesses propensity to abuse a romantic partner. The scale items are nonreactive, containing no explicit reference to abusive behavior. [we used this for men and women in the study]
  4. A multiple linear regression model revealed that increases in history of child maltreatment in one’s one childhood and lower levels of current self esteem were associated with increased levels of propensity (likelihood) to abuse a romantic partner in expectant men and women. Multiple linear regression is a model for predicting the value of one dependent variable based on two or more independent variables.
