"In the past 30 years, the study of intimate partner violence (IPV) has advanced considerably. Previously, IPV was conceptualized narrowly as male physical violence against women arising from a need for dominance. Now, experts assert that a variety of factors are associated with IPV and that IPV takes many forms--from verbal abuse or slapping to highly violent physical abuse or rape. In addition, research shows that women are often the perpetrators of IPV. As a result, IPV interventions have shifted over time from gender-focused interventions to gender-neutral interventions, with an emphasis on empirical evidence. This book presents a comprehensive overview of the most up-to-date research on IPV. Leading experts in the field cover a large range of topics, including theory, health effects, surveillance, prevention, and intervention. Emphasis is placed on understanding the development of IPV perpetration by itself and in the context of various risk factors. Above all, the book demonstrates the complexity of IPV and the importance of taking an empirical approach to prevention and treatment. This book will be of use to every IPV researcher and intervention provider. In addition, readers from the related fields of social work, criminal justice, victims' rights, public health, nursing, medicine, and public policy will benefit from this collection"--Jacket.
