Psichinės bei fizinės prievartos sąsajos probleminiai aspektai baudžiamosios teisės doktrinoje ir teismų praktikoje.
The present work analyses various aspects of interrelation between the physical and mental violence, which are of both theoretical and practical importance. The author emphasises that the problems of interrelation between physical and mental violence exist because the physical level is inseparable from the mental level. Physical violence always affects the state of mind of the human being and mental violence can affect the physiological functions of the body. The author concludes that delimitation between these separate types of violence must take into account not only the objective characteristics of the mechanism of influence, the dangerous consequences or the object of influence, but also the person’s intention. Although every physical violence affects the state of mind of a human being, not every physical violence constitutes mental violence. If fear is only an instantaneous reaction to physical violence, then it can not be ranked as mental violence. But if physical violence is used as a means to show to the victim what he/she can expect in the future, then physical violence is a form of intimidation and can be treated as mental violence.[...].
