Family Stresses and Violence issues in the USA

Family Stresses and Violence issues in the USA. Recognition of domestic violence and child and elder abuse is relatively recent. Kemp’s evidence of child battering presented in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1962 (Gelles, 1980; J. M. Johnson, 1997) was popularized in the medical, social science, and specifically the family research communities concurrent with the feminist movement in the 1970s. As this caught media and legislative attention, it resulted in major changes in awareness, action, and public opinion. While family boundaries have been sacred, according to Coontz, “the pathologies of family life simply cannot allow concern for ‘privacy’ to override the need for protection of abused family members” (1989, p. 14).
