Family a safe haven or a prison?

Maria Pia Turiello

Intra-family violence is a topic of great interest and discussion for all professionals dealing with the phenomenon, because 'ill-treatment' and 'family' are in strong contradiction with each other.

The family, the essence of which is developed through respect, sharing, understanding and solidarity between the various members, should in fact represent the social group least vulnerable to violence, sexual abuse, physical abuse, psychological violence and homicide. However, this contradiction exists on a daily basis and cuts across ages, places, socio-economic conditions and different cultures.

Therefore, the topic of violence should be carefully examined in different contexts, with the protagonists, perpetrators and victims, and for the different types of crime. It is therefore understandable that criminology has devoted particular interest to crimes that occur within the family.
