In a sample of more than 1,100 families in The Netherlands, referred in 2016 – 2018 to ‘Veilig Thuis’ (‘Safe at Home’), the nationally organized, local advice and reporting centers for domestic violence and child abuse in The Netherlands, we will show different consequences for children and their parents who are subjects/victims/perpetrators of partner violence and/or child abuse. We will focus on the differences between the various forms of violence, and their separate and combined effects on psychological trauma, emotional security, parenting stress and attachment of parents and children in these families.
