Intimate Partner Violence

The CDC states:

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans. The term “intimate partner violence” describes physical violence, sexual violence, stalking, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse.

 

This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples and does not require sexual intimacy.
