Abstract

Ten battered children and their families were evaluated by the author over a six-year period. It was found that important factors leading to abuse were fantasies of the abuser about the child, exaggerated dominant-submissive patterns in the marriage, and contributions of the child to the battering. The author offers several suggestions for using a family approach in treating battered children.
