Witnessing Domestic Abuse and Depression

Witnessing domestic abuse in childhood as an independent risk factor for depressive symptoms in young adulthoodDavid Russell, Kristen W. Springer, and Emily A. Greenfield
This study addresses the relationship between retrospective reports of witnessing domestic abuse in childhood and levels of depressive symptoms in young adulthood. We examine whether the association between having witnessed violence in childhood and depression is independent of having been the direct target of sexual and/or physical abuse, as well as other characteristics and experiences linked with family violence. | Link
