Description: This course explores the development of the literature on intimate partner violence. Beginning with a cursory discussion on anger the study moves into a primer on attachment theory and its connection to how individuals have violent responses to anxiety and frustration and yet others may be vulnerable to victimization. A concerted effort has been made to provide a variety of assessment and treatment tools throughout the study which should prove useful to practitioners. What we are learning about intimate partner violence precedes the discussion on batterers and victims. Batterer typologies are presented and discussed. Victims are described including a discussion about the connection between attachment experiences and victimization. A discussion of partner violence would be remiss without discussing the effects on subpopulations and here we discuss children, elders, and same-sex couples. This study presents the emerging controversies in this area of study; to present both sides and invite the learner to consider the arguments.
