13 December 2022
Descriptive statistics were used to ana- lyse the characteristics of the sample, as well as for the preva- lence of different types of domestic violence victimisation of the respondents and different types of their violent behaviour to- wards family members. [...] Similarly, the probability of com- members (regardless of relationship and mitting domestic violence increases 4.27 times with the expe- method of rience of victimisation by psychological sibling violence, while perpetration) predicted it increases 3.73 times and 3.37 times, respectively, with the ex- by domestic violence victimisation of perience of victimisation by mild and severe physical sibli. [...] The regression model of child-to-parent violence based on victimisation by domestic violence based on respondents' reports explained 50% of the variance, while the regression model of sibling vio- lence explained 42% of the variance, and the regression mod- el of grandchild-to-grandparent violence based on victimi- sation by domestic violence explained 40% of the variance. [...] In addition to child-to-parent violence and sibling vio- lence, the results show that the prevalence of psychological and mild physical grandchild-to-grandparent violence increas- es with the experience of victimisation by domestic violence, especially with the experience of corporal punishment, while the prevalence of severe forms of physical violence increases with the experience of victimisatio.
