This article will discuss how the sexual abuse that an adolescent develops towards another child can be understood as a manifestation of a multigenera- tional emotional process. Observing and understanding their abusive behaviors requires a broad perspective on how violence, maltreatment and abuse develop in family systems. Therefore, it’s essential to consider the emotional processes, chronic stress conditions and nodal events present in their multigenerational family, under which abusive behavior emerges, taking the form of sexual abuse toward other children. While considering that the adolescent who abuses another child is responsible for the act he/she has developed, it is proposed to extend the traditio- nal individual hypotheses to multigenerational relational hypotheses.
