Background: The present study was carried out with an emphasis on violent men exposed to domestic violence during childhood as the point of intervention to stop transmission of violence between generations in order to determine the role childhood exposure to domestic violence in predicting depression, anxiety and stress in this group of men.

Methods: This is a cross- sectional descriptive study, including 45 subjects selected within a 4 month period using a purposive sampling method. These men were selected because their wives had officially complained about battery and violence and in some cases with medical evidence of physical violence. They had accepted to complete the domestic violence and DASS questionnaires. The data were analyzed using Pearson's correlation coefficient and regression analysis.

Findings: The results revealed that the variables like witnessing domestic violence must be considered as important in predicting violent behavior in adulthood and being a victim of domestic violence in childhood is a variable that can be used to predict depression, anxiety and stress later.

Conclusion: These finding can be used to develop and implement more effective treatments for violent behavior and informing people about consequences of behaviors that increase the risk of involving children in domestic violence, leading to decrease in transmission of violence between generations.

Keywords: witness, victim, depression, anxiety, Stress, Men, domestic violence
