Psikiyatride Guncel Yaklasimlar , 2012,
Abstract: Domestic violence is a problem that affects the lives of many women both in urban and rural areas. Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder are the most prevalent mental health problems related with domestic violence. Children of battered women are also affected from the domestic violence. Children who grow up in families with intimate partner violence may suffer from a range of behavioral and emotional disturbances that can be associated with the perpetration or experiencing of violence later in life. The mental health care sector can have a significant impact on publicizing and addressing violence against women and children and on reducing the mental health problems related to abuse. This review focuses on domestic violence victims, most of whom are women and children victimized by their spouses or parents, along with the causes and cycle of domestic violence.

The Austrian Act on the Protection against Domestic Violence  [PDF]

Temida , 2002, DOI: 10.2298/tem0203015d
Abstract: The past few years have seen a fundamental and broadly based change in the response to domestic violence perpetrated by men against women. The Act on Protection against Domestic Violence which entered into force on May 1st, 1997 reflects this new orientation, or rather this shift in paradigm, which has led to a new understanding of the phenomenon of domestic violence and defines appropriate response by the state by it. The impact of this shift in paradigm is considerable: not only have public authorities and private women’s institutions changed their attitudes towards domestic violence, but the general public now responds to this phenomenon in a manner that is entirely different from what it was prior to the approach. Reports on cases of violence no longer merely state the facts indifferently, but now invariably end with the question whether the authorities had been informed and whether they had taken any action to prevent the crime. Thus the public authorities have come to assume responsibility for combating domestic violence as a result of societal developments.

Abstract: The term domestic violence describes a violent behaviour that ranges from verbal abuse, physical and sexual assault to rape and homicide. The vast majority of domestic violence incidents involve men being violent to women that they do not “break their silence”, as they usually do not know from whom they can ask help. Domestic violence against women has been defined as an important problem of public health with serious consequences for women, which it offends their physical and emotional integrity in short and long-term period and causes negative social impact. Studies, that have been conducted by researchers who come from different health care systems, have developed important evaluation methods, action kit and screening tools in order to support women that are victims of intimate partner violence. The potential use of these tools by health care providers could contribute in the effective confrontation of such incidents. The failure of health care providers to identify intimate partner violence incidents and offer support to its victims, constitutes an important problem for which various factors are incriminated, such as their lack of special education, their negative attitude towards the victims, and their difficulty to comprehend why women stay in violent relationships. In conclusion, it is noticed that the assistance and support of women victims of domestic violence is a moral obligation for the health care providers.

American Journal of Sociological Research , 2012, DOI: 10.5923/j.sociology.20120205.04
Abstract: This study assesses the contribution of socio-economic and demographic variables on children ever born (CEB) for women who have experienced domestic violence and women who have not experienced domestic violence by applying multiple classification analysis (MCA). The shrinkage coefficient () is employed for goodness of fit of the model. For this, Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey (BDHS) 2007 data is used in this study. This study contains 10,146 currently married women out of 10,996 ever-married women. Findings reveal that respondent’s education, age at marriage and wealth index has a negative significant effect on CEB and these are the first, second and third strongest influential factors for explaining the variability of CEB included all other variables for both women who have experienced domestic violence and women who have not experienced domestic violence. In this paper, it is recommended that respondent’s age at marriage and educational qualification should be raised substantially for abating fertility and domestic violence against women in Bangladesh.
