Domestic violence has a major impact on a child's emotional development. This relationship was first investigated by brain imaging. Studies have shown that exposure of children to the effects of adult anger and aggression can form the basis of a neurobiological risk factor, increasing their vulnerability to later mental health problems, primarily anxiety and depression.
Although violence does not damage the brain, because the body quickly adapts to adverse environmental conditions, it increases the vulnerability to stress and its consequences.
