Intimate Partner Violence

a RDSL Research Topic

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a significant public health problem among adolescents and young adults. We are using RDSL data to investigate the dynamic patterns of violence within young women's intimate relationships, the types of intimate relationships that include violence, and the extent to which individual and relationship factors influence these patterns. The findings will inform theory and prevention, intervention, and treatment strategies aimed at reducing intimate partner violence.
