The therapies such as psychoanalysis, free association and dream analysis are used to deal with unconscious mental processes. It is assumed that some anxiety disorders such as phobias, OCD,
One psychosocial explanation suggests that gender dysphoria is linked to some childhood trauma or maladaptive upbringing. Coates et al produced a case history of a boy who had developed GID. They proposed that the boy’s disorder was a defensive reaction to his mother’s depression following an abortion. The trauma happened when the boy was only 3, which is the age in which children are particularly sensitive to gender issues. Coates et al propose that the trauma led to a cross gender fantasy as a means of resolving the ensuing anxiety.
907-928. Topic This paper focuses on the aftermath of domestic and family violence and investigates the impact this violence has on children and their primary carers. In conjunction with this study, the author questions the 2006 reforms to the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) (‘FLA’).

For example, children that are exposed to their mother who is verbally, physically, or sexually abused may develop problematic relationships because of experienced aggression.

One of the most common myths is that because the individual raping is a domestic partner it is then not considered rape. This is false and the need to inform or educate the public is needed in order to get this news out.

This is false and often the ties that link the individuals together are deep and uneasily broken making it almost impossible to walk away. A truth about intimate partner sexual assault is that “In 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published data collected in 2005 that finds that women experience two million injuries from intimate partner violence each year.” (CDC 2008) A myth about intimate partner sexual assault is that if a intimate partner rapes their domestic partner it is because the individual is not giving sex up enough or depriving the aggressor.
