The project aims to conduct a developmental test (i.e. from childhood to adulthood) and a dyadic longitudinal test of an integrative model of intimate partner violence (IPV).
Significance The project is significant as it addresses four key IPV research limitations. These are the lack of focus on relationship dynamics, longitudinal research on couples, developmental tests of IPV, and research on same-sex couples. Expected outcomes include a comprehensive suite of assessments to effectively detect and support couples at risk of IPV and self-help resources to combat IPV. Benefits include the development of an integrative framework to identify couples most at risk of IPV and guide the development of interventions and policy to reduce IPV.
