An Intersectional Analysis of Intervention Methods for Intimate Partner Violence

This abstract has open access
Abstract Summary

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a widespread issue across the United States. Using psychotherapy alone is a common practice of intervention and healing for survivors of IPV. However, research suggests that a single method may not be the most effective approach. People of all identities experience intimate partner violence, but many marginalized communities lack access to resources which can prevent them from seeking help, and hinder their recovery. This project will review relevant research about intervention methods used to help survivors of intimate partner violence, and investigates the effectiveness of a more comprehensive method. It is proposed that a combination of psychotherapy, social support, and advocacy, along with the collaboration of community organizations would be not only beneficial, but necessary in helping survivors of intimate partner violence.
