Abstract

On the basis of20 court and psychiatric opinions included in court files concerning divorce action, the writers assessed the psychosocial determinants of aggressive behaviour in the family. They found that aggressive behaviour had clear-cut determinants such as poor material conditions and poverty, often below social minimum, law education level, alcohol abuse, decreased intellectual efficiency and emotional disorders.
