Does Gender Have Anything to do with Intimate Partner Violence: Current State of Evidence to Inform Social Work Practice and Education

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a complex social problem with various theoretical frameworks that have been applied to understand the etiology, antecedents and consequences of violence. In light of mixed research findings, this presentation will facilitate discussion of gender and its role in IPV. This presentation poses the question does gender have anything to do with IPV? The state of evidence regarding current research findings, research methodology, definitional refinements and typologies of IPV are presented to further address the ever pressing inquiry of gender and its complex role with IPV. Implications on how the state of evidence should inform social work practice are discussed.
