Background: The family is the paramount institution in our culture. Family abuse, whether it is concealed or results in physical violence, seriously jeopardizes a child's well-being. Approximately 1 billion children, or 50% of all children globally, experience the detrimental impact of violence, leading to profound and lasting consequences on their emotional, social, and economic well. The study aims to determine the sociodemographic characteristics of female intermediate school students under study and evaluate the impact of family violence on social and psychological development among female intermediate school students. Methodology: An experimental study design was conducted to achieve this study's objective. A sample is female intermediate school students in Al Nasiriya City, Iraq. Results: The study's findings indicated that the teenage stage is the most susceptible to violence, particularly from within the family, and the highest percentage was observed among unemployed mothers and fathers. In addition, the study sample possesses a high level of awareness of family violence. Furthermore, there are no discernible variations in the three readings between the intervention and control groups, and family violence has a significant influence on the development of psychiatric disorders, including anxiety, depression, and suicide. Finally, family violence is associated with emotional and hysterical disorders, as well as anxiety, depression, and suicide. Conclusion: Based on these findings, we may infer that during the teenage stage, children's behavior may not meet their parents' expectations, making them more susceptible to experiencing family violence; unemployed parents have the highest proportion of their children being exposed to violence due to the challenges of life and the low economic status.
