Intimate Partner Violence

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former intimate partner. An "intimate partner" can be a boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife, someone you are dating, or someone you have a sexual relationship with. IPV can happen between heterosexual (opposite sex) and same-sex couples. There does not have to be sexual intimacy in the relationship.

There are 4 main types of intimate partner violence:

  1. Physical violence
  2. Sexual violence
  3. Stalking
  4. Psychological aggression
