CAPANO, Alvaro  e  PACHECO, Ayrel. STRESS AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: A STUDY IN SIGNIFICANT ADULTS TO CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.1, pp.31-42. ISSN 1688-4221.

The article deals with the action research carried out with 60 significant adults (fathers, mothers, care giver, etc.) for children and adolescents who have experienced any kind of domestic violence (child sexual abuse or maltreatment). This descriptive research aims to identify and assess stressful life events and their perception from the results of the Perceived Stress Questionnaire -PSQ- (Cohen, Kamarck & Mermelstein, 1983; Gracia, Herrero & Musitu, 2002) and the Stressful Life Events List (Gracia, Herrero & Musitu, 2002). Results: 30.5 percent suffered between 5 and 10 stressful life events; 10.2 percent suffered more than 10 of these events. Of our selection, five of the items selected by adults refer to difficulties in family ties and relationships, two refer to financial or employment issues, and one refers to general/unresolved issues. In the score related to the perception of lack of control, 45 percent answered “quite often” while “sometimes” reached 30 percent. Regarding a feeling of control, 11 percent answered “never and almost never” while “sometimes” reached 33 percent. In conclusion, significant adults report to have suffered an important amount of stressful life events and show high levels of stress perception.
