In the past 30 years, the study of intimate partner violence (IPV) has advanced considerably. Previously, IPV was conceptualized narrowly as male physical violence against women due to a need for dominance. Now, experts realize that a variety of factors are associated with IPV and that IPV takes many forms - from verbal abuse or slapping to highly violent physical abuse or rape. In addition, research shows that women are often the perpetrators of IPV. As a result, IPV interventions have shifted over time from gender-focused interventions to gender-neutral interventions, with an emphasis on empirical evidence. ""Preventing Partner Violence"" presents a comprehensive overview of the most up-to-date research on IPV.
