Course Summary

According to the National Institute of Justice, intimate partner violence (IPV) is intentional physical, sexual, or psychological harm inflicted upon an individual by a partner or spouse. Intimate partner violence, sometimes called domestic violence, takes many forms such as physical assault, verbal insults and threats, emotional withdrawal, psychological manipulation, economic control, and sexual assault. Intimate partner violence can start early in a person’s lifespan and is commonly experienced during adolescence. Healthcare settings are important venues where victims of IPV may be heard and receive help.
