New study offers insights into the impact of domestic violence on the development of aggression

Science Daily reports:

According to researchers from Indiana University’s Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, children who grow up in aggressive households may learn to process social information differently than their peers who grow up in non-aggressive environments.

“Children with high-conflict parents are more likely to think that aggressive responses would be good ways to handle social conflicts,” said John Bates, a professor of psychology in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and a co-author of the study.
