Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to examine if gender differences regarding the effect of experiencing domestic violence among children exists and how this field can be comprehended in the light of different perspectives on gender and with social learning theory. A literature review was chosen as the mean for achieving this. The process of collecting articles resulted in the finding of 31 peer-reviewed articles. The compilation of the articles shows varying results and different perspectives on gender differences. Three themes materialized during the compilation of the articles, ”the cycle of violence and the social construction of gender”, ”externalizing and internalizing” and ”behavioral problems and psychological difficulties”. Some scientists have concluded that no gender differences can be found in relation to the three themes. The majority of these articles does however conclude that gender differences exist, and that they can be explained through different theoretical perspectives. The results of this study have been analyzed using gender theories and the theory of social learning.
