John Grych, Ph.D.

Dr. Grych and his students study a range of questions related to violence in close relationships, including the origins of physical and sexual aggression in adolescent relationships, the impact of family violence on children’s development, and processes linking childhood sexual abuse to revictimization in adolescence and adulthood. He also has published work on children’s perceptions of interparental conflict and aggression, family processes related to child psychopathology, and interventions for children from conflictual and violent families.
