"I was always on guard"--an exploration of woman abuse in a group of women with musculoskeletal pain. (1/234)

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to explore experiences of abuse of women, and the way it was described and hinted at, in a group of women suffering from biomedically undefined long-term musculo-skeletal pain (UMSD). METHOD: Twenty women patients participated. Data were gained through repeated semi-structured interviews conducted over 2 years and qualitatively analysed according to grounded theory. RESULTS: Eleven participants had experienced abuse. Abuse was difficult to disclose due to shame, fear of the listener's preconceptions and fear of the abuser. In the interviews it was diminished, 'sugar-coated' and renamed. However, the women gave hints of abuse before avowing it. 'An understanding listener', who was expected to apprehend the hints, ask about abuse and confirm that it was valid to talk about it, was described as a precondition for disclosure. CONCLUSION: This study suggests that it is important to explore woman abuse when investigating and treating UMSD. When there are hints of abuse, one should avoid blaming, stand by, be patient and ask about abuse even if the woman has once negated it. Fear of the abuser permeated the narratives and it is therefore suggested that doctors must consider carefully the danger involved.  (+info)

Domestic violence in northern India. (2/234)

This study examined the prevalence and characteristics of wife abuse as reported by nearly 6,700 married men living in five districts of northern India during 1995-1996. In addition, associations between wife abuse and sociodemographic factors were investigated to enable two theoretical/conceptual perspectives regarding abuse to be evaluated: that abuse is more common among families under stress and among more "private" families. The district-specific percentages of men who reported physically abusing their wives ranged from 18% to 45%, with 18-40% of the men in each district having had nonconsensual sex with their wives and 4-9% having physically forced their wives to have sex. The authors used logistic regression analyses to control for a variety of sociodemographic variables and found positive associations between wife abuse and stress-related factors, including the husband having a low educational level, the couple living in poverty, the husband being young when he first lived with his wife, and the couple having multiple children. Contrariwise, there was no strong empirical support for the idea that wife abuse may be more common in more "private" families.  (+info)

Women battering in primary care practice. (3/234)

BACKGROUND: The organization of health care system to emphasize managed care has placed the primary care provider in an ideal position to assess the impact of intimate partner violence (IPV) on the health of women. Primary care practice provides a setting in which women can develop an ongoing relationship with their health care provider in which they feel safe to discuss IPV and possible options to improve their lives. Women's health and safety could be dramatically improved if primary care providers were prepared to assess, intervene and appropriately refer women who are in violent relationships. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this article is to describe the prevalence of intimate partner violence in primary care populations and review the known physical, mental health and pregnancy consequences of abuse as well as discuss the implications of intimate partner violence on primary care practice.  (+info)

Physical and nonphysical partner abuse and other risk factors for low birth weight among full term and preterm babies: a multiethnic case-control study. (4/234)

This study sought to determine the risk of low birth weight from intimate partner abuse. The case-control design was used in a purposively ethnically stratified multisite sample of 1,004 women interviewed during the 72 hours after delivery between 1991 and 1996. Abuse was determined by the Index of Spouse Abuse and a modification of the Abuse Assessment Screen. Separate analyses were conducted for 252 full term and 326 preterm infants. The final multiple logistic regression models were constructed to determine relative risk for low birth weight after controlling for other complications of pregnancy. Physical and nonphysical abuse as determined by the Index of Spouse Abuse were both significant risk factors for low birth weight for the full term infants but not the preterm infants on a bivariate level. However, the risk estimates decreased in significance in the adjusted models. Although today's short delivery stays make it difficult to assess for abuse, it is necessary to screen for domestic violence at delivery, especially for women who may not have obtained prenatal care. The unadjusted significant risk for low birth weight that became nonsignificant when adjusted suggests that other abuse-related maternal health problems (notably low weight gain and poor obstetric history) are confounders (or mediators) that help to explain the relation between abuse and low birth weight in full term infants.  (+info)

Knowledge and attitudes of primary care physicians regarding battered women. Comparison between specialists in family medicine and GPs. (5/234)

BACKGROUND: Domestic violence is a widespread public health problem and an important part of primary care practice. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the approach of primary care physicians (family physicians and GPs) to the care of battered women. METHODS: A self-report questionnaire containing items about experience, knowledge and attitudes regarding the care of battered women was mailed to a random sample of 300 primary care physicians employed by the two major health management organizations in Israel. The population included family physicians, who have 4 years of residency training in primary care, and GPs, who do not undergo specialization after completing their medical studies. RESULTS: A total of 236 physicians (130 family physicians and 106 GPs) responded. In general, the physicians had had very little exposure to the problem and estimated its prevalence in the community as less than half that indicated in the medical literature. Compared with the GPs, however, the family physicians reported more exposure to the subject (P < 0.001) and had better knowledge of its prevalence and risk factors (P < 0.001). They also showed a greater tendency to view the problem as universal (P < 0.05) and as part of their professional responsibilities. However, both groups tended not to include the care of battered women with no physical injury within their professional duties. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians should be made more aware of the problem of battered women within the context of their routine professional practice and of the importance of keeping abreast of the subject. Educators should place more emphasis on imparting knowledge and skills in the management of battered women, especially for GPs.  (+info)

Sheltered versus nonsheltered homeless women differences in health, behavior, victimization, and utilization of care. (6/234)

OBJECTIVE: To contrast sociodemographic characteristics, physical and mental health status, substance use, sexual behaviors, victimization, and utilization of health services between homeless women residing in sheltered and non-sheltered environments. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. A structured scale was used to measure mental health status. Physical health status, substance use, sexual behavior, history of adult victimization, and health services utilization were measured by content-specific items. SETTING: Shelters (N = 47) and outdoor locations in Los Angeles. PARTICIPANTS: One thousand fifty-one homeless women. RESULTS: Homeless women living on the streets were more likely than sheltered women to be white and longer-term homeless. Controlling for sociodemographic characteristics, multiple logistic regression analyses revealed that unsheltered women had over 3 times greater odds of fair or poor physical health, and over 12 times greater odds of poor mental health than sheltered homeless women. They were also more likely than sheltered women to report using alcohol or noninjection drugs, to have multiple sexual partners, and to have a history of physical assault. About half of the overall sample reported utilization of a variety of health services; however, unsheltered homeless women were less likely to utilize all of the health services that were assessed, including drug treatment. CONCLUSIONS: There is a critical need for aggressive outreach programs that provide mental health services and substance abuse treatment for homeless women on the streets. Comprehensive services that also include medical care, family planning, violence prevention, and behavioral risk reduction may be particularly valuable for homeless women, especially those living in unsheltered environments.  (+info)

Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) primary prevention through fas diagnosis: II. A comprehensive profile of 80 birth mothers of children with FAS. (7/234)

A 5-year, fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) primary prevention study was conducted in Washington State to: (1) assess the feasibility of using a FAS diagnostic and prevention clinic as a centre for identifying and targeting primary prevention intervention to high-risk women; (2) generate a comprehensive, lifetime profile of these women; (3) identify factors that have enhanced and/or hindered their ability to achieve abstinence. The results of this study are presented in two parts. Objective 1 is summarized in the preceding paper and objectives 2 and 3 are summarized here. Comprehensive interviews were conducted with 80 women, who had given birth to a child diagnosed with FAS, to document their sociodemographics, reproductive and family planning history, social and healthcare utilization patterns, adverse social experiences, social support network, alcohol use and treatment history, mental health, and intelligence quotient (IQ). These high-risk women were diverse in racial, educational and economic backgrounds, were often victims of abuse, and challenged by mental health issues. Despite their rather harsh psychosocial profile, many demonstrated the ability to overcome their alcohol dependence over time. Relative to the women who had not achieved abstinence, the women who had achieved abstinence had significantly higher IQs, higher household incomes, larger more satisfactory social support networks, were more likely to report a religious affiliation, and were more likely to be receiving mental health treatment for their mental health disorders. The rate of unintended pregnancies and alcohol-exposed pregnancies was substantial. Key barriers to achieving effective family planning were maternal alcohol and drug use, lack of access to birth control and lack of support by their partner to use birth control. A FAS diagnostic and prevention clinic can be used to identify women at high risk for producing children damaged by prenatal alcohol exposure. Primary prevention programmes targeted to this population could lead to measurable reductions in the incidence of FAS.  (+info)

The association between violence victimisation and common symptoms in Swedish women. (8/234)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between violence and abuse suffered by women during childhood or adult life, and the manifestation of a high level of common physical and mental symptoms. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: A questionnaire was sent to a random population of women, 40 to 50 years of age, living in a rural Swedish community. The response rate was 81.7 per cent (397 women). Odds ratios were used to estimate bivariate associations between the experience of violence/abuse and common symptoms. Multiple logistic regression analyses were used to test for confounding and effect modification. MAIN RESULTS: The experience of violence or abuse during childhood was reported by 32.2 per cent of the women, while 15.6 per cent reported being abused as an adult. In both cases, these experiences reached statistical significance in their association with a high level of common symptoms (OR=1.67; 95% CI 1. 08, 2.49 and OR=2.26; 95%CI 1.30, 3.92, respectively). The associations between childhood and as well adult experience of violence or abuse and common symptoms were largely independent of potential confounders such as unemployment, job strain, social support, and sense of coherence. The combined exposure to adult violence/abuse and low psychosocial coping resources, such as low social support or a low level of sense of coherence, considerably increased the odds ratio for common symptoms and a synergistic effect seemed to exist. CONCLUSION: Violence or abuse experience is an important factor when considering illness manifestations in terms of common symptoms in women 40 to 50 years of age.  (+info)

How awful it was to learn so late in life of the manipulations of my own parents whom I had trusted and believed. How hurtful it was to have not had the opportunity to be closer to my own sister in growing up. But it could never have been an environment conducive towards either of us gravitiating towards each other anyway. My sister is 13 years older than I and so when I was 5 years old and starting kindergarten, she was 18 and entering college. With the abusive relationship both verbally and physically in the house she tried to spend as little time as possible at home. My mother would never admit to the abuse and would simply chastise herself as deserving what she got. She was the martyr of the family and would deny any wrongdoings of abuse if it were brought forth. And bringing it up to social services would have only enraged my father further which would see the abuse become worse. So the lesser of the two evils was to do nothing unless my mother complained - but she never did ...
Ok, so it might seem completely ridiculous to be nervous about it considering how often I am on here talking about sex.. But still, I am still nervous. Im getting tested for STDs. Im not even so worried about the results, but more about the actual exam its self. Ive had one before, but it didnt go so well: my nerves got the better of me and I ended up panicking and in tears. And then I couldnt relax because I was so upset and then it hurt.. Ive been in an abusive relationship in the past, and therefore I tend to get quite nervous with any type of physical and/or sexual contact.. Anyone been through similar feelings? Any advice or tips on ways to calm down a little before hand? I have anti-anxiety pills that I can take as needed if necessary.. Thanks in advance. =). ...

Bottom Line: I feel like Conservatives are in an abusive relationship right now and they are the abused spouse. We are like Tina Turner and we just say, "Hit us again, Ike". Why? Because we have no other options. There are no other choices for us. We cant leave, we cant pick someone better. So were told that we have to stay, that we cant do any better and that for the good of our family that we have to suck it up and endure it the best we can. The beauty of it for McCain is that he can keep on being arrogant and abusive because he knows we have no where to go ...

Page 2 of 3) IPv6 Standards. IPv6 represents the first major change to the Internet Protocol since IPv4 was formalized in 1981. For many years, its core operation was defined in a series of RFCs published in 1998, RFCs 2460 through 2467. The most notable of these are the main IPv6 standard, RFC 2460 (Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6) Specification), and documents describing the two helper protocols for IPv6: RFC 2461, which describes the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol, and RFC 2463, which describes ICMP version 6 (ICMPv6) for IPv6. In addition to these, two documents were also created in 1998 to discuss more about IP addressing: RFC 2373 (IP Version 6 Addressing Architecture) and RFC 2374 (An IPv6 Aggregatable Global Unicast Address Format). Due to changes in how IPv6 addressing was to be implemented, these were updated in 2003 by RFC 3513 (Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Addressing Architecture) and RFC 3587 (IPv6 Global Unicast Address Format).. Many other RFCs define more specifics of ...
There are three types of IPv6 addresses and each address type can be classified by the part of the network over which it is valid. In addition, there is an address type used in the transition from IPv4 to IPv6. As in the case of IPv4, a network interface may support multiple addresses at the same time. It may support addresses of each of the various types and may support multiple addresses of the same type.. IPv6 address types. Unicast: Unicast addresses are identical to IPv4 unicast addresses. A packet sent to a unicast address will be received by only one network node.. Multicast: Multicast addresses are used in the same way as multicast addresses in IPv4. Multicast was added to IPv4 after the basic address formats were designed. The result is that multicast addresses are confined to a very limited portion of the IPv4 address space. In IPv6, the multicast format will provide ample space for multicast addresses.. Anycast: Anycast addresses are new in IPv6. They are shared by multiple nodes. A ...
Relationship violence occurs at every socioeconomic level and across all age-groups, but women in their early 20s living in economically disadvantaged urban communities are especially vulnerable. Nonfatal intimate partner violence peaks during late adolescence and young adulthood,1,2 and women living in poverty are more likely to be victimized by intimate partners than are more affluent women.3,4 Intimate partner violence has frequently been examined in terms of its impact on reproductive health.

Objectives: Intimate partner violence (IPV) during pregnancy is a serious public health issue, and warrants special attention on assessing neighborhood and family contexts, which might provide rich targets for health promotion intervention. Neighborhoods may experience higher IPV rates because of contextual or compositional reasons. Recent contextual studies on IPV have focused on individual characteristics of victims and all women rather than pregnant women; only some used multilevel analysis, were small in size, and relied on police reports or ...

Background Intimate partner violence against women (IPV) has been identified as a serious public health problem. In total, 931 questionnaires were returned; 597 by nurses (59.7% response rate) and 328 by physicians (32.8% response rate). Overall, 32% of nurses and 42% of physicians reported routinely initiating the topic of IPV in practice. Principal components analysis identified eight constructs related to whether routine inquiry was conducted: preparedness, self-confidence, professional supports, abuse inquiry, practitioner consequences of asking, comfort following disclosure, practitioner lack of control, and practice pressures. Each construct was analyzed according to a number of related TG 100801 Hydrochloride IC50 issues, including clinician training and experience with woman abuse, area of practice, and type of health care provider. Preparedness emerged as a key construct related to whether respondents routinely initiated the topic of IPV. Conclusion The present study provides new ...

Obvious physical bruises or marks aside, the damage may be hidden, under clothing or emotional scarring thats never seen. Domestic Violence knows no boundaries and has no prejudices. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in a study done in 2010, "More than one in three women and one in four men in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime." October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. By wearing the color purple, you signify awareness of those who suffer, those who are victims, and those who lost their lives to domestic violence.. Starting in October 1981, it was one single day, called the "Day of Unity," by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. As time went on, it began to get more attention and grew to a weeklong event. Eventually, by 1987, the first Domestic Violence Awareness (DVA) month began.. Resolution Research wants to ...
Chronic illnesses (eg HIV/AIDS, cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimers, etc) can cause tension, stress and a range of other problems within a relationship but they do not cause domestic violence. Abusive partners (or ex-partners) choose the weapons of abuse and control they use, and their or their partners health can be used as one of these weapons. In some abusive relationships the domestic violence began at or around the time that the illness was diagnosed.. In some cases of domestic violence the abusive partner is the one with ...

Though a large body of research has investigated the impacts of domestic violence on adult’s  victims, only few studies has been devoted to the exposure of children’s to probable inter-spousal trauma that disrupts their neurological and biochemical pathways in development. The aim of this paper is to analyze the current empirical research that discusses the biological and psychological inference of domestic violence and risky family environment on children’s health. In realizing this objective, the paper used the ecological framework to explain the interaction effects of bio- psychological processes on emotional regulation and social competence skills of children living in a domestic violence and risky family environment. Finally, study shows that a risky and harsh early family environment exacerbates disturbances in children’ physiological and neuroendocrine responses to stress, and also has long-term adverse implication on their mental health.   Key words:

Domestic violence is a great evil and an offense against human dignity that shatters lives and robs children of their innocence. Where it occurs, homes are transformed into places of danger and despair. During National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we renew our commitment to preventing domestic violence.
Many abuse survivors have a high level of resilience as well as a pain threshold that could rival a sumo wrestler or someone walking on hot coals without so much as a grimace. Even if you feel like you can deal with further abuse even after the break-up, consider that this is truly a life or death situation. If you are escaping from a physical abuser, this affirmation hits home. Yet even if youre coming out of an emotionally abusive relationship, it also holds weight. I know many might not think of emotional violence as a life or death situation, but considering the suicides that occur from bullying and domestic violence and the fact that domestic violence survivors are actually at a higher risk of committing suicide, it is truer than we think. Each time we sacrifice our peace of mind for one more hit of the abuse rather than detoxing from the relationship, we also belittle, demean and abuse ourselves. These incidents build up collectively to reenact the same sense of hopelessness we had ...

But we know that friends and family members dont respond well. If you listen to some of the talks on Healthtalk youll hear that actually sometimes friends and family members were confused, they didnt know what it was they could do to help or they gave lots of advice or they suggested the woman leave when perhaps she wasnt at the stage where she was able to leave. And we know from what women say that actually those kind of things are quite un-helpful. Women want to be believed, they want to know that theyre going to be supported in the decisions theyre making - and they are quite complex decisions to make about whether to leave, when to leave, how to go about doing that, how to stay in touch with the person whos been abusive, particularly if theyve got children, thats something that has to happen. They want to be able to continue to communicate with their friends and family members but perhaps not to be obviously asked about whats going on and to be reminded of the situation. They ...

My choice of a Praxis project came about in a roundabout way. Earlier in the semester, I was worried about an individual who was in an abusive relationship and she ended up leaving with her children. She spent some time with other friends until she got her restraining order and was able to find some resources to help her get back on her feet. When I realized she was ready to leave, I started trying to find out what resources were available locally and went to Google- A funny saying of some of my friends that like to tweak church sayings is "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of Google, who giveth to all men liberally…." :) What I found was that the first six sources I found were no longer current and only one of the next few was still operating. I ended up spending hours on the phone and chatting with people trying to find the available resources. As I thought of a praxis project for this class, I realized that an individual who was thinking of coming out to friends and family about their ...

And then a year after we broke up, thats when I found the Freedom Programme. And that happened quite randomly through talking to a friend who was having addiction therapy, group therapy, doing a 12 step programme. So he was talking to me about that and about the benefit of group counselling. And he didnt, he didnt know anything about that, you know, it was literally a conversation about him and how beneficial he had found group counselling because of shared experience. Because, you know, addiction is this horrible quiet thing that nobody talks about and it seems really seedy and you feel really dirty. But when youre in a room of people who are all in the same situation, you start realising that, actually its not some dirty, nasty thing, there are reasons. So through having that entirely separate conversation with him, I suddenly thought, "Do you know what, this is what Im missing. Im missing shared experiences. Im constantly trying to, trying to explain myself and nobody gets it. And ...

The Hope For Healing blogathon was harder than I thought…. I thought I could, by dedicating a day to the subject of domestic violence, finally be personal about my own experiences, but that was not the case.. At first I thought it was because the world, my life, wouldnt stop for me for 24 hours (despite scheduling the date, family came in from out of town and visiting to-dos could not be put off); it may have made it more challenging, but the real reason is that domestic violence is a very personal & emotional issue for me.. Every time I begin to tell/type my story (or parts of it), I hear the heckling from the jerks - you know the ones, the ones who belittle and devalue your statements because they are anecdotal, not statistical - and they belittle & devalue you right along with their "complaints" of non-data to support yourself..

A cross sectional descriptive study was done of 373 women who attended the antenatal clinic and welfare units of a primary health center in Ile-Ife. The objective of this study was to determine, among a sample of women attending a primary health center in Ile-Ife, the socio-demographic factors associated with intimate partner violence. Respondents were aged 18-37 years; the majority of them (73.8%) were aged 21-30 years (mean age was 24.9 ± 4.09). Three quarters (73.5%) were married in a monogamous setting and well over half (60.1%) were employed. The prevalence of intimate partner violence in the previous twelve months was 36.7%. Significant socio-demographic correlates of intimate partner violence were the age of the respondents (younger), marital status (single and separated), marriage type (polygamous), employment (being employed), level of education (secondary school education) and having children. Also, Respondent's and partner's use of alcohol were significantly associated with
This statement summarizes the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations on screening for family and intimate partner violence, based on the USPSTFs examination of evidence specific to family and intimate partner violence, and updates the 1996 recommendations on this topic. In 1996, the USPSTF found insufficient evidence to recommend for or against the use of specific instruments to detect domestic violence (a grade C recommendation, according to 1996 grade definitions). The USPSTF now uses an explicit process in which the balance of benefits and harms is determined exclusively by the quality and magnitude of the evidence. As a result, current letter grades are based on different criteria from those in 1996. The complete information on which this statement is based, including evidence tables and references, is available in the accompanying article in this issue and in the summary of the evidence and systematic evidence review on the USPSTF Web site ...
Background: Intimate partner violence (IPV) is an important public health issue with severe adverse consequences. Population-based data on IPV from Muslim societies are scarce, and Pakistan is no exception. This study was conducted among women residing in urban Karachi, to estimate the prevalence and frequency of different forms of IPV and their associations with sociodemographic factors. Methods: This cross-sectional community-based study was conducted using a structured questionnaire developed by the World Health Organisation for research on violence. Community midwives conducted face-to-face interviews with 759 married women aged 25-60 years. Results: Self-reported past-year and lifetime prevalence of physical violence was 56.3 and 57.6%, respectively; the corresponding figures for sexual violence were 53.4% and 54.5%, and for psychological abuse were 81.8% and 83.6%. Violent incidents were mostly reported to have occurred on more than three occasions during the lifetime. Risk factors for ...
In an effort to obtain a more comprehensive picture of the nature and extent of spousal violence, Statistics Canada measured spousal violence against women for the first time in 1993 through the national Violence Against Women (VAW) survey. Statistics Canada began to collect information on spousal violence against both women and men, through Statistics Canadas General Social Survey (GSS) on Victimization in 1999. A random sample of approximately 24,000 Canadian women and men aged 15 years and older, living in the 10 provinces were asked about violence that their marital or common-law partner (current and previous) may have committed against them in the 5 years preceding the survey. Questions related to spousal violence were repeated in the 2004 GSS and results permit this analysis of how spousal violence has changed between the two survey cycles ...
A study published in the current issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine examines the results of a survey conducted in Washington State/Northern Idaho that asked 3,429 adult women about their lifetime experience of intimate partner violence. English-speaking women aged 18 to 64 who had attended a general health clinic for 3 years or more were surveyed via telephone. According to the piece, "Intimate partner violence was defined as physical, sexual, or psychological violence between adults who were present and/or past sexual/intimate partners in heterosexual or homosexual relationships. Intimate partners were defined as current or former spouses, nonmarital partners, or dating partners in relationships longer than 1 week. Partnerships could include relationships without sexual involvement ...
Harriet L., MacMillan, Professor, Gene Feder, Professor McMaster University and University of Bristol May 18, 2012 Link between evidence and conclusion unclear in USPSTF IPV screening systematic review As two clinician-researchers involved in the intimate partner violence (IPV) screening trial (1) that featured prominently in the recent US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) systematic review on screening women for IPV (2), we were perplexed by the authors conclusion that IPV screening can provide benefits that vary by population. This was the only trial identified as meeting the inclusion criteria to address question 1 of the review: "Does screening asymptomatic women in health care settings for current, past, or increased risk for IPV reduce exposure to IPV, physical or mental harms, or mortality?" Given that the trial results showed no differences between groups and the overall quality of the study was considered "fair", presumably the answer to question 1 would be "no" - which is what ...
Papers published in the latest issue of the International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics (IJGO) identify factors associated with violence against women. The papers specifically focus on intimate partner violence (IPV) in regional, national, and international settings, and provide valuable information for the healthcare community and policymakers worldwide. The research contributes to efforts to establish ways in which individuals at risk of IPV can be identified and to the development of successful interventions.
HIV- and MSM-related stigma are well documented as common for Chinese men who have sex with men (MSM) living with HIV, yet there is sparse literature on intimate partner violence (IPV) and its relationship with stigma in this vulnerable population. To evaluate the association between HIV-stigma and stigma related to homosexuality and IPV among newly HIV-diagnosed MSM in China. Data were collected in the baseline survey among newly HIV-diagnosed Chinese MSM in a randomized clinical trial via face-to-face interviews. Univariate logistic and multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed to assess the associations between IPV and HIV- and MSM-related stigma. Of 367 newly HIV-diagnosed Chinese MSM, 23.7% experienced any IPV, including 16.6% physical, 7.4% psychological and 5.2% sexual IPV. Positive associations were found between HIV- and MSM-related stigma and IPV. Men with high HIV-related stigma (score ≥ 27) were 1.67 times as likely to experience any IPV as those with low stigma (adjusted
Intimate partner violence against women (IPV) has been identified as a serious public health problem. Although the health care system is an important site for identification and intervention, there have been challenges in determining how health care professionals can best address this issue in practice. We surveyed nurses and physicians in 2004 regarding their attitudes and behaviours with respect to IPV, including whether they routinely inquire about IPV, as well as potentially relevant barriers, facilitators, experiential, and practice-related factors. A modified Dillman Tailored Design approach was used to survey 1000 nurses and 1000 physicians by mail in Ontario, Canada. Respondents were randomly selected from professional directories and represented practice areas pre-identified from the literature as those most likely to care for women at the point of initial IPV disclosure: family practice, obstetrics and gynecology, emergency care, maternal/newborn care, and public health. The survey instrument
The South African burden of disease reveals an extremely violent society with the highest reported intimate femicide rate [1, 2]. Most South African social contexts are characterised by oppression of women. At a fundamental level, disrespect for the feminine seems validated by cultural norms and values which prioritise males over females in multiple ways. This normative framework impacts negatively on the quality of peoples relationships and their self-expectations. Despite a progressive constitution and legislation, IPV is still regarded as culturally acceptable, and thus, in many contexts, is normalised [3].. The health consequences of intimate partner violence (IPV) can be categorised as fatal and non-fatal [4]. Fatal outcomes include femicide, suicide, maternal mortality, antepartum haemorrhage, abortion, stillbirth and AIDS. Non-fatal consequences comprise burns, fractures, chronic pain syndromes and mental illness, problems with hearing and sight, arthritis, seizures, headaches, sexually ...

The case, which spent four years in court, shows how domestic violence can happen anywhere, including affluent communities such as New Canaan. Kathy Lake, a spokesman for the Domestic Violence Crisis Center in Stamford, echoed Krolikowski, saying domestic violence crosses all boundaries, no matter the economic status or gender. Only about one-quarter of all physical assaults perpetuated against women by their partners are reported to the police, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence website. According to Krolikowski, roughly 75 percent of such cases involve domestic violence. In the past 10 years, the agency has expanded its community education programs, counseling services and task forces to raise awareness about domestic violence.

... in Minnesota.. To mark the beginning of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Secretary of State Steve Simon is reminding Minnesotans who fear for their safety, including victims of domestic violence, about the Secretarys Safe at Home address confidentiality program. "The Safe at Home program has assisted thousands of Minnesotans since its inception and is critical to ensuring protection for victims of domestic violence," said Simon.

Ive learned firsthand while traveling the state that this service has saved lives and I will work day and night to strengthen it as long as Im Secretary of State.".

The Spousal Assault Risk Assessment (SARA) by Kropp, Hart, Webster & Eaves (1995) is used to assess the risk of intimate partner violence. Their tool recognizes that intimate partner violence may occur without regard to gender (male on female, female on male, female on female, male on male, and any other combination including trans and non-binary individuals), marital status (married and commonlaw individuals may engage in intimate partner violence), and does not necessarily require physical injury.. What follows is a brief summary of how to administer and score the SARA. More comprehensive information can be found in the manual itself. The SARA may be administered by minimally trained individuals up to Forensic Psychologists and Psychiatrists.. The SARA is comprised of 20 items that to provide a framework of historic, static and dynamic risk factors that have been shown to increase risk.. ...
Intimate partner (or domestic) violence is defined by the World Health Organization as any behaviour within an intimate relationship that causes physical, psychological or sexual harm to those in the relationship. On the other hand, abuse can be of an elderly parent by the children or of some other member of the household to another member. It usually results from abuse and/or imbalance of power in close relationships. One person in the relationship consistently dominates or threatens with power and the abused victim gradually gives over more power. ...
As in all countries in the world, there is a lot of domestic violence in Japan too. For anyone interested in the severe problems faced by victims of domestic violence in Japan check out this report in April this year from Al Jazeeras Tony Birtley reports from Tokyo on the women who are speaking out about the problem.. http://www.mefeedia.com/entry/japanese-women-hit-back-at-domestic-abuse-25-apr-09/17189639. Although the report is well done well researched it seems to imply at the end that nothing is going to chance for a long time about the problem of domestic violence in Japan. Here, as in any other country in the world historically, there has been domestic violence in all types of societies, not in the least of course in societies and cultures that have taken a sexist (paternalistic) view that women were not as equal as men and could be beaten and suffer abuse at the hands of their husbands. Now, thanks to the work of volunteer womens groups and activist lawyers in Japan who have worked ...

The addendum was developed to explore the relationship between substance abuse and intimate violence among ADAM arrestees.

Marketing to Survivors of Domestic Violence. It appears there is an entire industry that profits from the misery of women who have been in abusive relationships and are desperately seeking justice in the court system that is supposed to protect them and their children. For many of them, that justice will never come because they are unaware that with all the knowledge and understanding they are seeking for themselves, the system which holds the power and makes the decisions could give a flying fuck about them and the books they are reading.. What purpose does a book on domestic violence and the law serve if it is not a required reading for every family law judge?. What purpose does this book serve if the judges are not required to follow the laws that are referenced? If the judges are not held accountable for their actions?. What purpose does this book serve if a book with opposing ideas (ie parity in domestic violence) is being promoted and distributed to judges simulataneously? A book which ...
Background. This study was designed to address a possible interaction of distorted cognitive processes associated with substance dependency and intimate partner violence (IPV), and the affects on subsequent behavior. Objectives. The primary focus was to investigate the relationship between offender perception (i.e., perception of family problems [FP] and perception of need for treatment for family problems [FPTx]) and treatment outcome (i.e., substance use and violence), among a unique sample of substance dependent male offenders of intimate partner violence. Additional investigations included: (1) the change in perception from baseline to the end of treatment, and (2) treatment modality in relation to treatment success. Methods. The data was drawn from a larger randomized treatment evaluation study (Easton, 2012). Sixty-three participants were randomly assigned to one of two manually-guided treatment conditions (Substance Abuse Domestic Violence Therapy or Independent Drug Counseling) and were assessed
Angela Daviss story illustrates the manner in which women of color experience violence perpetrated both by individuals and by the state. Since the first domestic violence shelter in the United States opened in 1974, and the first rape crisis center opened in 1972, the mainstream antiviolence movement has been critical in breaking the silence around violence against women, and in providing essential services to survivors of sexual/domestic violence. Initially, the antiviolence movement prioritized a response to male violence based on grassroots political mobilization. However, as the antiviolence movement has gained greater prominence, domestic violence and rape crisis centers have also become increasingly professionalized, and as a result are often reluctant to address sexual and domestic violence within the larger context of institutionalized violence.. In addition, rape crisis centers and shelters increasingly rely on state and federal sources for their funding. Consequently, their approaches ...
Intimate partner violence (IPV) including physical, sexual and emotional violence, causes short and long term ill-health. Brief questions that reliably identify women experiencing IPV who present in clinical settings are a pre-requisite for an appropriate response from health services to this substantial public health problem. We estimated the sensitivity and specificity of four questions (HARK) developed from the Abuse Assessment screen, compared to a 30-item abuse questionnaire, the Composite Abuse Scale (CAS). We administered the four HARK questions and the CAS to women approached by two researchers in general practice waiting rooms in Newham, east London. Inclusions: women aged more than 17 years waiting to see a doctor or nurse, who had been in an intimate relationship in the last year. Exclusions: women who were accompanied by children over four years of age or another adult, too unwell to complete the questionnaires, unable to understand English or unable to give informed consent. Two hundred and
It is important to realize that domestic violence is a vicious cycle. It typically begins with mild emotional and/or physical violence. Studies have shown that alcohol-fueled domestic violence usually occurs during or right after drinking. It may start at a party or when you are out to drinks and dinner. Your partner gets intoxicated and something you say or even an innocent glance by another snaps something inside your partner. He becomes irate and starts acting crazy. Perhaps he throws something, threatens you or gets out of hand. You leave and the next day, things are forgotten. But it happens again, and again. You, as the victim, become used to the behavior and either block it out or rationalize it. "He didnt mean to do it, " or "It was my fault," and so on.. But the abuse continues, eventually increasing in both how bad it gets and how often it occurs. There comes a time, maybe now, when you realize that the alcohol-fueled violence is extreme. It could be the result of one particularly ...
Love without compassion is possessive, controlling, and dangerous. The simplest definition of emotionally abusive behavior is anything that intentionally hurts the feelings of another person. Since almost everyone in intimate relationships does that at some time or other in the heat of an argument, emotionally abusive behavior must be distinguished from an emotionally abusive relationship, which is more than the sum of emotionally abusive behaviors.

Meta-analysis was limited by heterogeneity in outcomes and approaches to measurement across included studies. In our review, "identification" referred to any form of acknowledgment by a clinician during a consultation that the woman had experienced exposure to intimate partner violence. The clinical interaction was seen as important in increasing the likelihood that a woman with a positive result on screening would receive an appropriate response. Identification might have been underestimated by relying on clinicians willingness to document intimate partner violence in womens charts21 27 32 or participants recall of what occurred during encounters.20 33 Audio-recording encounters to collect data on identification could also have influenced clinicians and patients willingness to raise or discuss the issue.25 27 Rates of identification by clinicians were low relative to the rates of disclosure in the computerised or written assessment. For example, Rhodes and colleagues found that of the 83 ...
In order to end intimate partner violence, the problem must be addressed and confronted at the societal, community, relationship, and individual levels. Intimate partner violence prevention encompasses proactive efforts to stop violence and abuse from happening in the first place by interrupting the cultural rules, norms, and constructs that support it.. Successful prevention efforts reflect a social change model that promotes a thriving culture where all relationships are built on respect, equality, and peace.. Intimate partner violence (IPV), also referred to as domestic violence, is a pattern of abusive behaviors - including physical, sexual, and psychological attacks as well as economic coercion - that adults and adolescents use against an intimate or dating partner. It is characterized by one partners need to control the other by use of a range of tactics.. There are a variety of factors at all levels of the social environment that allow intimate partner violence to exist. Those involved ...
Intimate Partner Rape (IPR) is a pervasive form of gender-based violence and a topical human rights issue. This study investigated the causes and consequences of Intimate Partner Rape and violence as reported by selected married women in Nigeria. This qualitative study explored the experiences of 22 purposively selected married women aged, 22 to 40 years from two Save Our Soul (SOS) Shelters for Abused Women who have been victims of Intimate Partner Rape/Violence. Qualitative data on Intimate Partner Rape/violence experiences and associated factors was collected through eight Focus Group Discussions (FGDs). Descriptive analysis was used for the demographic characteristics of the participants. The transcription of the recorded audio cassettes, together with the recorded field notes, provided data for the thematic analysis. The discussions revealed that the principal causes of Intimate Partner Rape/Violence were unequal power relations; alcohol and drug dependence and jealousy. Self-reported
One in six women arriving at orthopedic fracture clinics have been victims of physical, emotional, or sexual violence at the hands of an intimate partner, a large multinational study reveals.
According to this study, 17.5% of FSWs in Ethiopia had been physically beaten within the last 12 months and 15.2% had been raped since they started selling sex. Age, sex-selling venues and high consumption of alcohol and khat were significant predictors of physical violence (beating). On the other hand, the significant predictors of sexual violence (rape) were low income and high consumption of alcohol and khat.. The prevalence of both physical violence and sexual violence (rape) was lower than the prevalence found in studies conducted in Uganda, Ivory Coast and Kenya.9 12 30 32 However, when compared with the studies conducted in Adama (Ethiopia), China, India and Mexico, the current study reported a higher prevalence of both physical and sexual violence.10 11 13 14 33 The difference in the definition of violence used might be one of the possible explanations for the difference between the current result and those found in other studies in Africa. Most of the studies assessed all forms of ...
Indiana recognizes that every Hoosier deserves to live in a safe and supportive environment where he/she can flourish. To this end, the ISDH Office of Womens Health has made a strong commitment to the primary prevention of sexual violence. Primary prevention focuses on stopping first time sexual violence victimization and perpetration. In 2010, the state developed its first comprehensive plan to address sexual violence, entitled Indianas Commitment to Primary Prevention: A State Free of Sexual Violence 2010-2015. This plan provided guidance for advocacy agencies across the Hoosier state to find a role in stopping sexual violence.. In 2015, the ISDH Office of Womens Health, along with nearly 30 community-based and governmental partner agencies, recommitted to ending sexual violence in Indiana. The Sexual Violence Primary Prevention Council (SVPPC) worked together to develop a comprehensive primary prevention plan under which individual advocates, community agencies, coalitions and governmental ...
