  • The Dark Side Of The Family
    • Pizzey - Suggests that domestic violence is a result of patriarchy and oppression. Men use domestic violence as a way of controlling women.
      • Liberal Feminists - DV arises from two sources, different gender-role socialisation and a crisis of masculinity
        • Crisis Of Masculinity - Men's traditional source of identity (work) is no longer guaranteed so domestic violence is therefore an attempt to re-exert their power, control and status

                • Child Abuse: Department Of Health - 95% of children on child protection registers were from families living in poverty, suggesting people who physically abuse children appear to be concentrated in low-income groups
                  • Creighton and Noyes - Physical abuse: Fathers - 61% Mothers - 36% Mothers were more likely to be involved in neglect and emotional abuse
                • Explanations of child abuse: Bell and Vogel (Functionalist theory) - The dysfunction of child abuse may be less serious than the breakdown of the family, feuding parents use children as  emotional weapons
