Rohner breaks new ground by offering a theoretical foundation for the problem of child abuse. Drawing on data from several societies, both industrialized and non-industrialized, he studies the effects of parental rejection on children within the framework of his Parental Acceptance/Rejection Theory. Moreover, he offers insights into the conditions enabling individuals to break the cycle of abuse.
