Several studies found double standards in how people tend to view emotional abuse by men versus emotional abuse by women. Follingstad et al. found that, when rating hypothetical vignettes of psychological abuse in marriages, professional psychologists tend to rate male abuse of females as more serious than identical scenarios describing female abuse of males: the stereotypical association between physical aggression and males appears to extend to an association of psychological abuse and males.[63]:446 Similarly, Sorenson and Taylor randomly surveyed a group of Los Angeles, California residents for their opinions of hypothetical vignettes of abuse in heterosexual relationships.[64] Their study found that abuse committed by women, including emotional and psychological abuse such as controlling or humiliating behavior, was typically viewed as less serious or detrimental than identical abuse committed by men. Additionally, Sorenson and Taylor found that respondents had a broader range of opinions ...
Aims and objectives To examine the association between sociodemographic, pregnancy-related variables and psychological and verbal intimate partner abuse, as well as to determine which of these variables are predictors of psychological and verbal intimate partner abuse during pregnancy. Background Intimate partner violence is a significant health issue, with severe implications to both mother and foetus. However, much of the research to date focuses on the outcomes of physical abuse. This article addresses the dearth in the literature by examining the association between sociodemographic, pregnancy-related variables and psychological and verbal intimate partner abuse during pregnancy. Design A survey research design was used. Method Three hundred postnatal women were recruited by convenience, nonproportional quota sampling technique. The WHO Violence Against Women Instrument was self-administered by participants. The association between categorical variables was assessed using Pearsons ...
It is unclear whether there is variation in the impact of intimate partner violence (IPV) on child peer problems, and which individual and environmental factors might predict such variation. This study uses data from 7,712 children (3,974, 51.5% boys) aged 4 from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC). Children were cross-categorized based on exposure to IPV from birth to 3 years, and mother-rated peer problems at age 4, into 4 groups: Resilient, Non-resilient, Vulnerable and Competent. Between-group differences in maternal depression, maternal life events, parenting, attachment, and temperament were analyzed, and these variables were also examined as predictors of group membership. Girls were more likely to be identified as resilient. In contrast to the non-resilient group, resilient boys were less emotional, had more secure attachment to their mothers, more interaction with their mothers partner, and their mothers reported fewer life events. For girls, the resilient ...

Violence against women is pandemic; globally 30% of women have experienced intimate partner violence. A review of literature indicated that even though intimate partner violence is a major public health issue, the health sector has been slow to respond, firstly by not identifying and responding to it in womens health consultations, and secondly by poor data collection. Emergency departments see a minority but important sector of women exposed to intimate partner violence: women most heavily abused by a partner. This thesis starts from a position, based on previous research in the field, that often when women attend an emergency department after an assault by their partner, their experience of intimate partner violence is missed. Framed by the sociology of diagnosis, the focus of this thesis is the (mis)dassification of intimate partner violence in hospital-based emergency department heath systems. This thesis was positioned ontologically and epistemologically through a synthesis of critical ...
Objectives: This longitudinal study examined the prevalence of womens sexual intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration, the extent to which women experienced both sexual IPV victimization and perpetration, and the overlap between womens experiences of sexual IPV with psychological and physical IPV victimization and perpetration. Methods: Data were collected via self-report survey from 180 women during the first 18 weeks of pregnancy and 122 participants completed follow-up assessments at 6 weeks postpartum. Results: At both time points, the prevalence of sexual IPV victimization and perpetration were similar in this sample. Bidirectional sexual IPV was more common than sexual IPV victimization or perpetration only. Most participants who experienced sexual IPV victimization at baseline and follow-up also experienced psychological or physical IPV victimization. No participants at either time point reported sexual IPV perpetration only, those participants who perpetrated sexual IPV also ...
Although increasing womens levels of education is crucial to reducing IPV for women, proximate educational context is also an important factor in reducing this public health burden.
I am writing on behalf of the ManKind Initiative, the expert, specialist and leading UK charity supporting male victims of domestic abuse. This is in regard to the above document published in July 2020 which is the Statutory Guidance to be used to enact the legislation in the Domestic Abuse Act when it gains Royal Assent.. We are writing to complain at the use of the word vast by the Home Office when describing the relative numbers of female and male victims of domestic abuse and are requesting that the UK Statistics Authority instruct the Home Office to remove this word.. This word appears twice:. Paragraph 23 (Page 8): Domestic abuse most commonly takes place in intimate partner relationships. The vast majority is perpetrated by men against women, but men are also subject to abuse by female partners, and both men and women experience abuse from same sex partners.. Paragraph 61 (Page 18): Whilst the statutory definition of domestic abuse is gender-neutral, we recognise that more women than ...

TUESDAY, Feb. 18, 2020 (American Heart Association News) -- Women who experience domestic abuse may be more likely to develop heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes, new research suggests.. The British study, published this week in the Journal of the American Heart Association, sought to fill in gaps in what is known about the link between domestic abuse and cardiovascular disease - the leading cause of death in women globally. One in 4 women in the U.S. has experienced domestic abuse severe enough that it resulted in injury, the need for medical help or symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.. A 2019 Canadian study found women who experienced domestic abuse had above-average risk factors for heart disease, but comprehensive research on the topic is sparse. The new study looked at data from 18,547 women over age 18 who had experienced domestic abuse and compared them to 72,231 women of a similar age who had lifestyle risk factors for cardiovascular disease.. Researchers looked to see ...

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 ...

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

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.
Psychological abuse refers to the humiliation or intimidation of another person, but is also used to refer to the long-term effects of emotional shock.

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
Physical violence in intimate relationships affects men, women, and families worldwide. Although the body of research examining the experiences of male victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) has grown, there have been few attempts to synthesize, compare, and contrast findings regarding the prevalence of male and female victimization. We examined research published in the last 10 years to summarize the current state of knowledge regarding the prevalence of physical IPV victimization in heterosexual relationships. Our specific aims were to (a) describe the prevalence of physical IPV victimization in industrialized, English-speaking nations; and (b) explore study and sample characteristics that affect prevalence. Literature searches undertaken in three databases (PubMed, PsycINFO, and Web of Science) identified 750 articles published between 2000 and 2010. We included 249 articles that reported 543 rates of physical IPV victimization in our review: 158 articles reported 318 rates for women, 6 ...
Research on the impact on children living with domestic abuse indicates much higher rates of depression and anxiety, trauma symptoms and behavioural and cognitive problems than those who do not encounter these issues. Impacts on developmental and behavioural outcomes are similar for children witnessing domestic abuse and those experiencing direct physical abuse. Indeed, for children under eight years old witnessing abuse towards their primary care giver may be more psychologically disturbing than direct physical maltreatment.. Emerging evidence on the interaction between environment and babies neurological development draws attention to their vulnerability to the effects of trauma these studies also suggest that development is recoverable with early intervention and removal from the stressful environment. Research looking at the impact of domestic abuse shows that in many groups there is a substantial sub-group whose well-being is comparable to that of other children. This raises questions as ...
Background Partner abuse (domestic violence) is common worldwide. It includes physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; threats; withholding money; causing injury; and long-lasting physical and emotional health problems. Advocacy (active support by trained people) may help women make safety plans, deal with abuse, and access community resources.. Evidence on the effects of advocacy will help service planning and provision.. Method We searched scientific literature worldwide up to April 2015 for clinical trials comparing advocacy for abused women with no care or usual care, to understand whether advocacy was safe and effective. We found 13 trials conducted in several countries, involving 2141 women from various ethnic groups, aged 15 to 65 years and often poor.. Studies varied in terms of advocacy duration (30 minutes to 80 hours) and participating staff (students, nurses, professional advocates, psychologists, social workers, community health workers, mothers in antenatal clinics, researchers). ...

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 ...
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.
Although there are few studies reporting the prevalence of psychological abuse, the position statement says large population-based, self-report studies in Britain and the United States found approximately eight-to-nine per cent of women and four per cent of men reported exposure to severe psychological abuse during childhood. The statement says pediatricians need to be alert to the possibility of psychological abuse even though there is little evidence on potential strategies that might help. It suggests collaboration among pediatric, psychiatric and child protective service professionals is essential for helping the child at risk. Funders for the papers development included the Family Violence Prevention Unit of the Public Health Agency of Canada ...

AU - Wilson, Janet Sullivan. AU - Kelen, Gabor D. AU - Campbell, Jacquelyn C. PY - 2017/1/1. Y1 - 2017/1/1. N2 - Purpose: Because identification of intimate partner violence (IPV) in health care settings is low and strangulation increases lethality risk among women experiencing IPV, we examined the prevalence and correlates of nonfatal strangulation among 1,008 women survivors of IPV. Methods: Trained researchers conducted semistructured interviews with women survivors of IPV referred by police. Multinomial logistic regression examined differential correlates of attempted, completed, and multiple strangulation. Results: Interviews were conducted with 71.14% of eligible women contacted by researchers. A high proportion (79.66%) of the women interviewed experienced attempted (11.70%), completed (30.16%), ...
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 ...
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious issue with substantial prevalence in the community and represents a significant factor leading to injury related morbidity and mortality. IPV affects 23% of women and 14% of men in the US. Additionally, 16% of homicide victims and over 40% of female murder victims are killed by an intimate partner (Niolan, et al.). Based on data from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men have experienced injury, the need for medical care, or post traumatic stress symptoms as a consequence of IPV.. Unfortunately, these numbers have remained relatively constant since 2010, highlighting the need for better prevention strategies (Miller, et al.). Based on data from an EAST multicenter trial, 1 in 9 trauma patients are at risk for intimate partner and sexual violence. There was also a significant association between IPV and trauma-associated comorbidities such as substance abuse, mental illness, and recidivism (Zakrison, et ...

I chose the beneficiaries, out of the many organizations dedicated to stopping school bullying and intimate partner abuse, based on their local activities, variety of services, and multigenerational/multicultural approach. To fight bullying, I chose PFLAG Gainesville, the local branch of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, which addressed both the challenges of coming out and the risk of suicide for LGBT youth. To fight intimate partner abuse, I chose Peaceful Paths, which provides shelter, counseling, legal assistance, health information, and dozens of other services for abuse and sexual assault victims. And to fight teen dating abuse, I chose Break the Cycle, which provides information and services to help teens identify unhealthy relationships and to stop abusive and bullying behavior while the perpretrators are young..

Participants were either officially married, traditionally married or in a consensual union during one or more surveys and completed at least one follow-up survey. The primary outcome was union disruption through divorce or separation from the primary sexual partner.ResultsPast year IPV ranged from 6.49 % (severe physical abuse) to 31.99 % (emotional abuse). Severe physical IPV was significantly associated with divorce/separation, after adjusting for other covariates (aOR = 1.80, 95 % CI 1
New research surveying young Irish people has revealed a sobering reality about the nature of their relationships: 20% of young people under the age of 25 have experienced physical, sexual, and online intimate partner abuse. The report, entitled One in Five, was published by Womens Aid in collaboration with Red C on the United Nations Day Opposing Violence Against Women and reveals stark and disturbing findings, according to Womens Aid CEO Sarah Benson.. Launched with President Michael D. Higgins and Minister for Justice Helen McEntee in attendance, the research showed that 51% of women who had experienced abuse in an intimate relationship were younger than 18 when the abuse began. Nine out of ten women who reported abuse detailed the experience of emotional abuse - behaviour which functions to establish a power imbalance in the relationship, often with detrimental psychological effects more serious and long-term than physical violence.. Over half of those women who reported intimate ...

TORONTO - Imagine a teacher telling a child: youre fat. Youre a piece of crap. Youre a waste of my time.. That kind of behaviour would never fly in the classroom, so sports scholar Gretchen Kerr wonders why its prevalent on the playing field and in the gym.. While sexual abuse is in the spotlight, thanks to numerous high-profile cases, Kerr said Canadian sport also needs to take a hard look at the potential damage inflicted by psychological abuse.. Theres a general societal awareness that when young people experience sexual harm, they suffer in one way or another for a long, long time, Kerr said. And what the research shows, and I dont think its as poignant in the minds of the general public, is that same can be said about psychological abuse, that when young people experience psychologically abusive relationships, the negative long-term consequences can be just as enduring and just as damaging.. Kerr and fellow University of Toronto professor Bruce Kidd spoke to Canadian sport ...

Study Purpose: This project examined the impact of intimate partner violence on labor force participation of current and former welfare recipients and determined whether change in welfare status affected violence levels. This study sought to identify the incidence of partner violence among recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) over a three-year period, to examine the impact of partner violence on womens labor force participation over time, and to explore the short and longer-term consequences of victimization on the womens employment and economic well-being, as well as their physical and mental health. Specifically, the goals were to: (1) assess the impact of violence on employment over time while controlling for other factors (such as ethnicity, physical and mental health, household composition, childcare, and transportation) that may also be related to violence and employment, and (2) examine whether change in womens self-sufficiency (e.g., through loss of welfare ...
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 ...
This study investigated a typology of abuse using the Multi-Dimensional Emotional Abuse Scale (MDEAS) in order to determine the utility of using the MDEAS with a diverse, clinical sample. Respondents were 242 couples seeking couples therapy at a university-based clinic. Factor analyses were conducted on both womens and mens reports of partners psychologically abusive behaviors as indicated on the self-report questionnaire. Analyses yielded four-factor models for both groups, although there were some differences in item retention between the groups. Forced two-factor analyses were also performed, and results indicated that a four-factor model better conceptualized the nature of psychological abuse when using the MDEAS. Finally, associations between types of psychological abuse and relationship factors were examined. All factors of psychological abuse were significantly associated with physical abuse and relationship satisfaction; factors differed in their associations with attachment styles. ...

RIVISTA SPERIMENTALE DI FRENIATRIA - Issues in measuring and comparing the incidence of intimate partner homicide and femicide - A focus on Europe ( Intimate partner homicide is an important contributor to homicide rates worldwide, disproportionally affecting women as victims. Still, major gaps exist in the measurement of intimate partner homicide, with many homicides not being identified as intimate partner homicides. This article provides an overview of the main issues in the collection and reporting on intimate partner homicide, focusing in particular on the data situation in Europe. Sources of homicide data - national and police statistics, court statistics and files, mortuary data and newspaper databases - face similar challenges, namely absence or missing information on the victim-offender relationship, and different categorizations of key parameters, such as definition of intimate partner homicide, and identification of reporting periods. This is concerning, as strong and reliable data on the

OBJECTIVES: We examined the interactions between three dopamine gene alleles (DAT1, DRD2, DRD4) previously associated with violent behavior and two components of the adolescent environment (exposure to violence, school social environment) to predict adulthood physical intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration among white men and women. METHODS: We used data from Wave IV of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health, a cohort study following individuals from adolescence to adulthood. Based on the prior literature, we categorized participants as at risk for each of the three dopamine genes using this coding scheme: two 10-R alleles for DAT1; at least one A-1 allele for DRD2; at least one 7-R or 8-R allele for DRD4. Adolescent exposure to violence and school social environment was measured in 1994 and 1995 when participants were in high school or middle school. Intimate partner violence perpetration was measured in 2008 when participants were 24 to 32 years old. We used simple and
I have mostly avoided looking at the comments because very few of them actually address the content of what I wrote. PZ Myers, somewhat predictably, jumped at the chance to dress me down for my perceived sexism in a blog titled, You Dont Get to Be Over Rape -an obvious dig at the poems by Ensler and myself. Myers admits that Im technically correct that Enslers statistics are not exactly right, but claims Im being hyperskeptical, and states that One billion women have been victims of homicide, intimate partner abuse, psychological abuse, dating violence, same-sex violence, elder abuse, sexual assault, date rape, acquaintance rape, marital rape, stranger rape and economic abuse, confirmed by statistics that Radford cites. One billion women. Radfords hyperskepticism is so fierce that he objects to Ensler using 3 general words - raped, beaten, violated - instead of 26 more specific words, but is willing to overlook the horrific truth that she is correct and one billion women will ...
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is one form of gender-based violence that concerns people in intimate relationships. Those involved may be current or former spouses, boyfriends, or girlfriends in heterosexual or homosexual relationships [1]. The perpetrators can be either men or women [2]. However, this paper concentrates on IPV by men against women because of its commonness and the serious negative effects on a womans health.. IPV by men against women is a worldwide public health and human rights concern. According to the WHO multi-country study, performed in 10 countries using a standardized methodology, the prevalence of different types of IPV vary between 15% and 71% among women aged 15-49 years [3, 4]. Studies from developing countries that were not involved in the WHO study, such as Haiti, Nigeria and Uganda, have estimates with a similar variation (11-52%) [5-7]. In urban Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, estimates of lifetime prevalences are 33% for physical and 23% for sexual violence against ...
Strategies to reduce intimate partner violence against women (IPVAW) can be targeted at different levels. Batterer intervention programs (BIPs) are among the main treatment approaches for IPVAW offenders. The most common outcome used in the evaluation of BIP effectiveness is recidivism. Efforts to increase BIP effectiveness in reducing recidivism should focus on key predictive variables of this outcome. The aim of this study was to identify key predictors of official recidivism from a large set of variables drawn from a sample of IPVAW offenders court-mandated to a community-based BIP (N = 393), with a follow-up period of between 0 and 69 months. To this end, a survival analysis was conducted using four sets of variables: individual-level, relational- and contextual-level, violence-related, and intervention process-related variables. To include all variables in the analysis simultaneously, a Cox regression model was estimated with the adaptive least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (ALASSO).

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 ...
During 2013, the Ohio Intimate Partner Violence Collaborative (OIPVC) enabled local child protective services (CPS) agencies in 13 Ohio counties to participate in the Safe and Together training program. The training aims to improve the ability of CPS agencies to work effectively with families that are experiencing domestic violence through skill building and values clarification. The training sought to provide participants with information and practice skills such as screening, assessment, documentation, interviewing, partnering and engaging.
|i|Background|/i|. Intimate partner violence (IPV) adversely affects female reproductive health in different ways. However, the relationship between IPV and abortion has not been adequately examined in Nepal. This study is aimed at examining the association between IPV and abortion in Nepal. |i|Methods|/i|. Data for this study was derived from the Nepal Demographic Health Surveys (NDHS) of 2011 and 2016. A total of 8641 women aged 15-49 years were selected for the violence module in NDHS 2011 and 2016. The analysis was restricted to 2978 women who reported at least one pregnancy five years preceding each survey. Among them, 839 women who experienced different forms of violence were included in the analysis. Various forms of IPV were taken as exposure variables while abortion as an outcome of interest. The study employed logistic regression analysis to examine the association between IPV and abortion. |i|Results|/i|. Nearly one in three (28.2%) women experienced any forms of IPV. A total of 22.2% women
Intervention studies for depression and intimate partner violence (IPV) commonly incorporate screening to identify eligible participants. The challenge is that current ethical evaluation is largely informed by the four principle approach applying principles of beneficence, non-maleficence, and respect for justice and autonomy. We examine three intervention studies for IPV, postnatal depression (PND) and depression that used screening from the perspective of principlism, followed by the perspective of a narrative and relational approach. We suggest that a narrative and relational approach to ethics brings to light concerns that principlism can overlook. The justification most commonly used to incorporate screening is that the potential benefits of identifying intervention efficacy balance the risk of individual harm. However, considerable risks do exist. The discovery of new information may result in further depression or worries, people might feel burdened, open to further risk, unsure of whether to

This paper uses spatial data of cases of intimate partner violence against women (IPVAW) to examine neighborhood-level influences on small-area variations in IPVAW risk in a police district of the city of Valencia (Spain). To analyze area variations in IPVAW risk and its association with neighborhood-level explanatory variables we use a Bayesian spatial random-effects modeling approach, as well as disease mapping methods to represent risk probabilities in each area. Analyses show that IPVAW cases are more likely in areas of high immigrant concentration, high public disorder and crime, and high physical disorder. Results also show a spatial component indicating remaining variability attributable to spatially structured random effects. Bayesian spatial modeling offers a new perspective to identify IPVAW high and low risk areas, and provides a new avenue for the design of better-informed prevention and intervention strategies.

The study is the first quantitative examination of the relationship between intimate partner violence, reproductive coercion and unintended pregnancy.. Posted March 3, 2010. Young women and teenage girls often face efforts by male partners to sabotage birth control or coerce pregnancy - including damaging condoms and destroying contraceptives - and these efforts, defined as reproductive coercion, frequently are associated with physical or sexual violence, a study by a team of researchers led by UC Davis has found.. Published online in the January issue of the journal Contraception, the study, Pregnancy Coercion, Intimate Partner Violence and Unintended Pregnancy, also found that among women who experienced both reproductive coercion and partner violence, the risk of unintended pregnancy doubled. The study is the first quantitative examination of the relationship between intimate partner violence, reproductive coercion and unintended pregnancy, the authors say.. This study highlights an ...
The South Yorkshire Project at Target Housing currently consists of 3 separate and very different projects in Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster. All projects are providing accommodation for vulnerable adults and families who have either become homeless or have previously struggled to maintain a tenancy and require support to succeed.. In Sheffield, the South Yorkshire Project are working in partnership with IDAS (Independent Domestic Abuse Service) to provide emergency temporary accommodation to people fleeing from domestic abuse. The service is aimed at supporting GBT+ (gay, bisexual, trans, and all minority sexual and gender identities) male victims of domestic abuse as well as single women who have multiple and complex needs and for whom Sheffields refuges would not be suitable. Prior to this project Sheffield did not have any specialist safe accommodation for male victims of domestic abuse and as a result they were housed in generic hostels or private rented accommodation that did not meet ...
PSNI officers from Causeway Coast and Glens have been participating in joint training with Women’s Aid in relation to providing help and support for victims of domestic abuse.
Victims of domestic abuse are encouraged not to discuss it in family court, or risk being accused of turning the children against the other parent.
The purpose of this study is to target co-occurring problems of substance use and intimate partner violence (IPV) using a computer-based intervention, B-SAFER (Brief intervention for Substance use and partner Abuse for Females in the Emergency Room). This project will develop and test the computer-based intervention, examining primary outcomes of substance use and utilization of relationship safety resources ...
TW: this post discusses trauma and intimate partner abuse] Im Amy, and I am a survivor of abuse. I wont be getting into the gory details but, in order for this piece to make sense, sharing a bit of background is necessary in order to set the scene. I was sexually abused by my first boyfriend. I was fifteen when it began, and he was several years older. We were together for six years, and sexual violence was an ongoing undercurrent in our relationship. Later, I dated a much older man who emotionally abused and gaslighted me, and systematically broke me down for five years until I eventually worked up the nerve to leave.. I am in healthy relationships now, I have an excellent therapist, and I am doing much better. However, the damage of these experiences leaves scars that run deep - and cannot always be seen from the surface. Healing has been a long and many-layered process. One thing I have consistently refused to do, though - one thing I will never do - is be quiet. Several months after my ...
At one point in the not-too-distant past, a fight between spouses -- even a physical one -- was thought to be a personal matter, not the purview of police, prosecutors, or judges. More recently, law enforcement has taken domestic abuse more seriously, although juries were liable to take a he said/she said approach to accusations of violence in the home. Nowadays, thankfully, it seems like everyone is taking domestic violence seriously, from the expansion of definitions to include other members of the family or household, to the increase in convictions and penalties for domestic abuse. But questions remain. Here are five of them from our archives: 1. How Long Do You Have to File a Police Report for Domestic Violence? Victims of domestic abuse can often struggle with the decision to report violence in the home. Ignorance of domestic violence laws or fear of abandonment or increased abuse keeps many victims from going to the police at all. But statutes of limitation put a cap on how long you can ...
Most countries such as the USA, Australia, UK etc have extensive laws and support systems to protect women from domestic violence.

To understand the co-occurrence of multiple types of violence, the authors developed a behavioral typology based on self-reports of suicidal behaviors, physical violence, and psychological abuse. Using a sample of dating adolescents from a high-risk school district, they identified five clusters of behaviors among the 1,653 students who reported being abusive or violent in the past year. Victimization and perpetration with same-sex peers and dating partners clustered together among the students who reported the highest levels of abusive (n = 357) or violent behavior (n = 146). These students also reported high levels of suicidal behavior. There were few significant demographic differences across clusters. The implications of the results for the need to design and evaluate efforts to prevent multiple types of violence are discussed ...

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.
Daniel Hawkins, 16, of Corona; Drake Ruiz, 16, of Corona; and Jacob Ivascu, 16, of Riverside, died late Sunday night when the CHP said Chandra intentionally rammed the Toyota Prius the three boys were in, along with three other friends who survived.. The CHP would not comment why its investigators believe the boys were chased and rammed by Chandra in his white Infiniti. The force of the collision sent the Prius into a tree at Temescal Canyon Road and Trilogy Parkway.. Witnesses told CHP officers about the Infiniti they saw ram the Prius and flee, with front-end damage, and where it was parked. Chandra was arrested less than a mile from the crash scene.. Officer Juan Quintero, a CHP spokesman, said Tuesday he could not comment on the condition of the three surviving boys because of patient privacy laws.. He did not immediately respond to a question about how the CHP investigation was going.. Ruizs mother told reporters the teens, who were on their way to a sleepover to celebrate Ivascus ...
Despite Uganda having a multitude of policies, plans and initiatives to advance gender equality and improve the quality of education - including the National Policy on the Elimination of Gender-Based Violence and the National Strategy for Girls Education - school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV) remains pervasive across the country and a major obstacle to Uganda meeting its goal to make education safe for all. A 2013 study by UNICEF found that 81% of students surveyed experienced violence at school, including sexual, physical and psychological abuse. Sixty-eight percent reported abuse by teachers, and 30.4% by fellow students. Girls are especially vulnerable to SRGBV, due to widely-accepted attitudes and practices that discriminate against and marginalize women and girls. In classrooms, girls are often less academically challenged than their male counterparts, affecting their current and future performance and self-confidence, and girls are more likely to experience sexual violence, ...

Background: This study examined the associations between measures of alcohol abuse/dependence (AAD) and violent offending and intimate partner violence (IPV) to age 30 in a New Zealand birth cohort. Methods: Outcomes included: measures of violent offending, violence victimization, and physical IPV perpetration and victimization. The study also used measures of AAD symptoms; and time-dynamic covariate factors including life stress, other substance use, mental health status, peer and partner substance use and offending, and unemployment. Data were analysed using conditional fixed effects regression modelling augmented by time-dynamic covariate factors to control for confounding. Results: Those with five or more AAD symptoms had unadjusted rates of violence outcomes that ranged from 4.10 to 11.85 times higher than those with no symptoms, but these associations did not differ by gender. Adjustment of the associations for both unobserved fixed effects and time-dynamic covariate factors reduced the ...
Study Purpose: The objectives of the project were: (1) to describe the prevalence and context of dual arrest in the United States, (2) to explain the variance in dual arrest rates throughout the United States, (3) to describe dual arrest within the full range of the police response to intimate partner violence, (4) to analyze the factors associated with no arrest, single arrest and dual arrest, (5) to examine the reasons why women are arrested in intimate partner cases, and (6) to describe how the criminal justice system treats women who have been arrested for domestic violence. Study Design: Part 1 (Phase I Data) involved an extensive analysis of year 2000 National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) data (NATIONAL INCIDENT-BASED REPORTING SYSTEM, 2000 [ICPSR 3449]). To facilitate compatibility among the incidents examined, and to make the project more manageable, it was decided not to include all criminal offenses, but instead to limit the study to incidents where the most serious offense ...
Domestic and intimate partner violence (IPV) is prevalent and occurs much more frequently than is reported, detected or even suspected. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions 2015 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, about 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men experienced contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner and reported an IPV-related impact during their lifetime.1 (See box, below.) Physicians are in a unique position, having a privileged perspective into a patients life not shared by others, and thus, have an opportunity to detect domestic violence. Chronic illness is associated with an increased risk of financial strain, relationship stress and depression, all of which could contribute to an increased risk of domestic neglect and abuse. It is quite possible, therefore, that you may encounter a situation in your rheumatology practice in which you either believe abuse has occurred or you at least ask the ...
Child abuse is an abhorrent, but not uncommon, problem in society. Stories abound in the media about children who have suffered maltreatment at the hands of parents, family members, caregivers, or strangers. Maltreatment might involve physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional/psychological abuse, or neglect - and children often are victims of more than one type of abuse.. Determining the specific number of children who are abused is difficult because the legal definitions of abuse vary by state/region, as do methods for collecting information about abused children. Further, many cases of abuse are likely never reported.1 Nevertheless, the National Childrens Alliance estimates that nearly 700,000 children are abused in the United States each year, with children in their first year of life being the most vulnerable.2. Although child abuse is concerning for many reasons, it is particularly worrisome from a public health perspective. A 2015 clinical report in Pediatrics notes that maltreatment can ...
On the other hand, many care workers clearly do understand what constitutes abuse and neglect. In a 2001 study, care workers identified twenty-five such practices. Normalization might be restated thus: If everyone else does it, it must be okay, and if something is okay theres no need to report it. Over time, inappropriate behaviour, flawed procedures and poor practices become the norm, and when no one pauses to re-examine and re-evaluate we have what the military call SNAFU.. Consider these numbers:. A 1987 survey of 577 nursing home staff members from 31 facilities found that more than one-third (36 percent) had witnessed at least one incident of physical abuse during the preceding 12 months (Pillemer and Moore, 1989); and a total of 81 percent of the staff reported that they had observed and 40 percent had committed at least one incident of psychological abuse during the same 12-month period.. Ask yourself whats wrong with this picture:. In 2000, the Atlanta Long-Term Care Ombudsman ...
Intimate partner violence (IPV), defined as physical violence, sexual violence, stalking, and/or psychological aggression by a current or former intimate partner. IPV is prevalent and has lasting consequences for survivors and their children (CDC, 2017). It is important to understand the services that exist to help prevent IPV and address it effectively when it occurs. IPV
For example, women in the study whod been abused within the past five years were four times more likely than other women to have symptoms of severe depression in addition to at least one other physical symptom, including nausea, back pain, chest pain and headaches.They were also three times as likely to describe their health as fair or poor. Although physical abuse was associated with the worst health for women, psychological abuse, such as put-downs, controlling behavior and threats, also affected the womens health ...
Image courtesy of Freedigitalphotos.net. Bullies use their physical size, age, or gender to intimidate other children-whether by abusive language, social threats, physical aggression or psychological abuse. Usually, students who are quiet or those with disabilities are more likely to be targeted than others. Fortunately, schools are now doing more to address this long-standing problem. Nonetheless, as a parent, it is your responsibility to keep your child safe.. Is your child being bullied?. If you suspect your child is being bullied, the first thing to do is to take a long breath. As a parent, your first instinct may be to march over to the school, grab the bully by the neck and tell him to stop harassing your kid…or else. However, what youre doing is just what the bullys doing to your child. Remember, your goal is to help your child protect himself as much as possible, and not beat up another kid.. Youd need planning and understanding to keep your children safe. Here are eight tips to ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Youth dating violence. AU - Williams, James. AU - West, Carolyn. AU - Deters, Karla Ezrre. AU - Armijo, Eduardo. PY - 2000/9/1. Y1 - 2000/9/1. N2 - Adolescents responses to the Youth Dating Violence Survey have previously been documented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (1996). The present study on dating violence examined the responses of thirty-seven adolescents enrolled in an alternative high school program. Many reported psychological victimization in a dating relationship: their partners did something to make them feel jealous, damaged their possessions, said things to hurt their feelings, insulted them in front of others, tried to control them, threatened them, blamed them for bad things the dating partners did, and brought up something from the past to hurt them. In terms of perpetrating psychological abuse in a dating relationship, over half of the adolescents reported that they hurt their dating partners feelings, insulted them in front of others, did ...
The suit maintains that these youth housed at Glen Mills suffered at the hands of Glen Mills leadership and staff. Instead of receiving treatment and services, as required by the Pennsylvania Juvenile Act, plaintiffs claim that they were subjected to extreme and sustained physical and psychological abuse and deprived of an education. The abuse had a particularly dire impact on youth of color - the vast majority of Glen Mills youth were African American - as well as students with special education needs and disabilities, whose educational and other rights were ignored.. The suit asserts that officials at the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Chester County Intermediate Unit allowed Glen Mills education program to operate in the shadows without any oversight or monitoring to ensure the educational rights of students. The suit also maintains that the persistent and barbaric abuse went unchecked due to the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services callous disregard for the safety and ...
A positive school climate exists when everyone in the school community feels safe, included and accepted.. Students, parents/guardians, school staff, community partners and visitors have the right to be safe, and to feel safe in their school community. With this right comes the responsibility to contribute to a positive school climate.. The promotion and use of various strategies and initiatives all help to create a positive school climate. Examples being used at HPEDSB schools are restorative practices, mental health promotion programs, character development and prevention and intervention strategies to address inappropriate behaviour.. The provincial and Board Codes of Conduct set clear standards of behaviour for a safe and positive school climate. Physical, verbal, written, sexual, or psychological abuse, bullying, discrimination and the willful damage of property are not tolerated. These standards of behaviour apply to students whether they are on school property, on school buses, at ...
Hello, my name is kathryn I am 33 years old. I have been in a very unhappy marriage and suffered years of extreme psychological abuse from my husband. He insisted that I had to be sterilised last year as he had decided he had completed his family. It didnt matter that I wanted more children. He came with me to the hospital to ensure I had it done. He threatened me continually until I agreed to go ahead. Unknown to me at the time, he was continuing relationships with other women. I was lucky enough to be able to find the courage to leave the relationship in November last year, having had to move in secret. I am now living in rented property where he doesnt know where i am. But my only regret is that I can now not have the further children that I so desire. I am still young enough to have a hopefully successful reversal but the time frame I have isnt great, as the chances of success reduce the longer the clips are in place. Please please help me to fulfill my dream of extending my family. Thank ...
In this study, we explored rates of mental disorders among US Black women (African-American and Caribbean Blacks) in the USA, with a focus on social and other contextual factors including neighbourhood characteristics, perceived discrimination and IPV. We found generally high rates of any anxiety disorder (23.7%) and mood disorder (16.7%) among all US Black women, relative to other mental disorders in this population. High rates of suicide ideation were also noted (12.7%). Importantly, lifetime rates of mental disorder among Black women in this study were slightly lower than estimates from the general population.34. The results of the study also provide some support for the idea that immigrant groups may have more favourable health conditions than non-immigrants. This was evident across mental health conditions (with the exception of eating disorders), noticeably lower rates of post-traumatic stress disorder, alcohol abuse disorder and suicide attempts were found for Caribbean Black women ...
