Course Summary

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is indiscriminate; it occurs across gender, racial, ethnic, geographical, religious, and disability lines. The National Institute of Justice (2019) defines IPV as physical, sexual, or psychological harm inflicted on an individual by a partner or spouse. IPV, also sometimes called domestic violence (DV), can occur in various forms, including physical, verbal, emotional, psychological, economic, and sexual abuse. Survivors of IPV can experience immediate and long-term health, social, psychological, and economic consequences. The complexity of an IPV experience can affect a person across multiple domains, including individual, interpersonal, familial, community, and societal. Because of its broad scope, clinicians should be aware of the many facets of IPV. Chances are that practitioners will work with individuals who have past or current experiences with IPV either as perpetrators or survivors. The purpose of this learning material is to help practitioners learn about the prevalence of IPV, its indicators, and theories about how IPV occurs and why it is perpetuated.
