In addition, stalking is often included among the types of IPV. Stalking generally refers to repeated behavior that causes victims to feel a high level of fear (Tjaden and Thoennes 2000). Learn more about stalking.

IPV is a serious problem that is common in our society. Violence by an intimate partner is linked to both immediate and long-term health, social, and economic consequences.
