Conceptualizing acts and behaviours that comprise intimate partner violence: a concept map (2015)

This 2015 study aims to explore the conceptualization of intimate partner violence (IPV) among men and women from diverse subpopulations in Toronto, ON. ‘External and Cultural Influences’, ‘Victim Response to Abuse’ and ‘Social and Emotional Manipulation’ were a few domains that participants rated as moderately or highly important contributors to IPV. Their findings have important implications for the conceptualization of IPV and for future IPV measurement and measurement tool development.
