Background and aims: Many studies show that greater child abuse risk is evident when parents
engage in more parent-child aggression, severe physical discipline and psychological
aggression. Parental child abuse risk can be estimated by evaluating parent reports of harsh,
aggressive parenting behaviors exhibited during parent-child conflict. This paper attempts to
analyze the patterns of attachment between child and parents as a basis of further child abuse.
Methods: The sample was comprised of parents engaged in a retrospective study monitoring
abuse risk, with over involving families with more sociodemographic risks (i.e., ≤150% of the
federal poverty line, receipt of federal assistance, ≤ high school education, single parenthood,
≤ age 18). The participants were analyzed through forensic psychiatric expertise conducted for
the needs of the court.
Results: The results summarized the attachment difficulties in maltreating families into:
rejection, role
reversal, and the multigenerational transmission of unresolved trauma.
Discussion – Conclusions: Study proves the significance of mothers’ and fathers’ parenting
style history on their own child abuse risk and psychological parent child aggression, and
parenting style across the transition to parenthood. These findings emphasized the
transmissibility of high levels of authoritarian parenting history on negative parenting but did
not provide similar support for low levels of authoritative parenting history relating to similar
negative parenting.
