Numbers on family violence are staggering. The United Nations Secretary-General’s Study on Violence against Children (United Nations, 2006) estimates that about 275 million children are exposed to violence at the home, either by being the target of child abuse or by being a witness to intimate partner violence. Almost half of young adults experience an incidence of intimate partner violence in their romantic relationships (Renner & Whitney, 2012). Although most studies focused on female victimization, some studies have found considerable violence perpetration among females and males (e.g., Archer, 2000).
