    Intimate Partner Violence

    continued...

    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. Factors at all levels—individual, relationship, community, and societal—contribute to the perpetration of IPV. Preventing IPV requires a clear understanding of those factors, coordinated resources, and empowering and initiating change in individuals, families, and society.
