A new study by Andrew Grogan-Kaylor and Shawna Lee, both U-M associate professors of social work, and colleagues indicates the violence caused by spanking can lead adults to feel depressed, attempt suicide, drink at moderate-to-heavy levels or use illegal drugs. Researchers note that given that both spanking and physical abuse involves the use of force and infliction of pain, as well as being linked with similar mental health outcomes, it raises the question of whether spanking should be considered an adverse childhood experience. This involves abuse, neglect and household dysfunction, which includes divorce and an incarcerated relative. Study participants completed self-reports while seeking routine health checks at an outpatient clinic. They were asked about how often they were spanked in their first 18 years, their household background and if an adult inflicted physical abuse push, grab, slap or shoved or emotional abuse insulted or cursed In the study sample, nearly 55 percent of respondents reported being spanked. Men were more likely to experience childhood spanking than women.
