School and domestic violence: their interconnection and interdependence

2387

Abstract

We present a study of prevalence of children’s needs neglect, as well as various forms of physical and psychological violence against children in school and at home. The sample consisted of 289 secondary school students (42,7% boys and 57,3 % girls), 11 to 18 years old, living in Nizhny Novgorod and the region. The main research method used is questionnaire ICAST-C (International Child Abuse Screening Tool, Children's Version). We revealed that the vast majority of children are subjects to different forms of physical and psychological abuse as well as needs neglect. We analyzed the features of the family situation in which the child lives. A child who has survived psychological or physical violence at home, is confronted also with the psychological and physical violence at school. We revealed an interconnection between home and school violence, as well as their mutual interdependence.
