The Effect of Witnessing Marital Violence in Childhood on Dating Violence among College Students


The purpose of this study was to examine the mediating effects of attitudes toward dating violence and anger regulation in the relationship between children's experience of witnessing their parents' marital violence and dating violence among college students. 377college students enrolled in introductory psychology courses completed questionnaires on witnessing parental violence, attitude toward dating violence, anger regulation, and dating violence. The data were analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling. The results were as follows: (1) students exposed to greater parental violence were more likely to view violence as justifiable in a dating relationship and had more difficulty with anger management, which were associated with higher levels of physical and psychological violence toward their own dating partners. (2) The results further revealed that attitudes toward dating violence and anger regulation fully mediated the relationship between witnessing marital violence and dating violence.
