About the Course:

This course contains two articles. Article I ( Nature and Consequences of Personality Problems in Maltreating Caregivers )
In this article the authors develop a theoretical model that views caregivers who repeatedly maltreat their children as limited in providing appropriate parenting responses to their offspring because of psychosocial problems that pervade most sectors of their functioning. The proposed theoretical model targets 3 interacting dimensions of personality functioning (interpersonal relationship capacity, emotion regulation and self-esteem maintenance). Implications for the development of assessment and intervention strategies and for empirical testing of the model are outlined.

Article 2 ( Choice Within Entrapment and Entrapment Within Choice )
The authors explore the differential meaning of choice among battered women who stay in violent relationships and challenge the either/or paradigm that equates leaving with choice and staying with entrapment.
