Addressing Intimate Partner Violence in Integrated Care Settings


April 30, 2018

2:30pm- 4:00pm EST

About 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner at some point in their lifetime. Among the victims of intimate partner violence, 1 in 3 women experienced multiple forms of rape, stalking, or physical violence and 9 in 10 of male victims experienced physical violence alone. Those who experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner and reported impact related to the abuse (e.g., being fearful, concerned for safety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, need for health care, etc.) and were more likely to report frequent headaches, chronic pain, difficulty with sleeping, activity limitations, poor physical health and poor mental health than those who did not experience violence and abuse. (National intimate partner and sexual violence survey, CDC 2010.)

Given these statistics, intimate partner violence is a prevalent public health problem affecting millions every year and directly impacting the behavioral health of survivors.
