“IPV, IT’S SILENT AND DEADLY!”

>IPV stands for Intimate Partner Violence, and it is a very real thing. It can be characterized as the exertion of power and control of one person onto to another.  (SW250 PowerPoint Lecture 2/9/2016)

>Many people when they think of IPV only the physical abuse comes to mind. IPV can come in many different forms, however the scars left behind by some of these forms are not always visible.  (SW250 PowerPoint Lecture 2/9/2016)

>Women are not the only victims of IPV, and men aren’t the only assailants. Victims of IPV come in all shapes and sizes. They can be men, women, old, young, adolescents, heterosexuals, and members of the LGBTQ community.  (SW250 PowerPoint Lecture 2/9/2016)

>In all IPV relationships there is a general cycle that applies. First the relationship starts off in a honeymoon phase. Then minor incidents begin to occur and the relationship moves into the tension-building phase. After, the abuse and tensions escalate even more and the relationship enters the explosive phase. The last phase of the cycle is reconciliation, which leads to the inevitable vicious cycle that is an IPV relationship. (SW250 PowerPoint Lecture 2/9/2016)

>In the United States, women from ages 16-24 are the most vulnerable to IPV. They tend to know the least about domestic violence and its warning signs and patterns, and are therefore three times more likely to become victims of domestic violence. (Steiner, TED Talk, 2012)

>Many people always ask the question of IPV victims; why did she stay? Many victims of IPV are strong individuals who stay because they feel they are the only ones who can help fix this person they love so much. Other reasons people in IPV relationships stay are out of fear, love, and most often because of children.  (Moylan, 2/11/2016, Guest Lecture)

>”Over 70% percent of domestic violence murders happen after the victim has ended the relationship, after she has gotten out.” (Steiner, TED Talk, 2012)
