This chapter explores the effects of exposure to violence during childhood in contexts of poverty, as well as some of the psychosocial mechanisms involved in the intergenerational transmission of violence. Essential processes of child-parent attachment in the early years are explored, as well as the disorganization of early attachment related to violence. Among the effects of early attachment disorganization are failures in emotion regulation, social agency, and mentalization, all of which tend to distort future parent-child relationships, thus exposing the next generation to violence. Principles and policies to promote resilience among children in contexts of poverty are discussed in the last section of the chapter.

Keywords:   trauma, poverty, violence, attachment disorganization, intergenerational transmission
