    • Description:
      Intimate partner violence (IPV) occurs between two people in a close relationship. The term “intimate partner” includes current and former spouses and dating partners. IPV exists along a continuum from a single episode of violence to ongoing battering.

      IPV includes four types of behavior:

      • Physical violence is when a person hurts or tries to hurt a partner by hitting, kicking, or using another type of physical force.

      • Sexual violence is forcing a partner to take part in a sex act when the partner does not consent.

      • Stalking is a pattern of repeated, unwanted attention and contact by a partner that causes fear or concern for one’s own safety or the safety of someone close to the victim.

      • Psychological aggression is the use of verbal and non-verbal communication with the intent to harm another person mentally or emotionally and/or exert control over another person.

      Several types of IPV may occur together.
