Intimate partner violence is a significant societal problem. However, treatment of IPV perpetrators is far from effective, which may be partly due to the fact that the role of substance abuse is not taken into account. There is considerable evidence that a strong relationship between the use of alcohol and other drugs and intimate partner violence exists. Besides, a few studies indicate that reducing substance use may have a positive impact on IPV. Therefore, in this study, per...
The goal of this study is to test and evaluate the feasibility, acceptance, safety, and efficacy of an an intimate partner violence (IPV) intervention in recently-married, low-income husband-wife dyads in Pune, India.
The purpose of this study is to target co-occurring problems of substance use and intimate partner violence (IPV) using a computer-based intervention, B-SAFER (Brief intervention for Substance use and partner Abuse for Females in the Emergency Room). This project will develop and test the computer-based intervention, examining primary outcomes of substance use and utilization of relationship safety resources.
The overarching goal of this study is to pilot an approach to HIV testing and counseling (HTC) that addresses intimate partner violence. The results of the study will fill an important gap in the literature and contribute to efforts by Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya—and the HIV and sexual and reproductive health field globally—to better address intimate partner violence in our work.
The proposed stage 1 intervention development study is designed to address two significant co-occurring issues for fathers with substance abuse (SA) problems: Intimate partner violence (IPV) and child maltreatment (CM). SA treatment programs are an important avenue to reduce family violence because SA treatment alone does not result in an end to these behaviors. Currently available interventions have had little success in reducing male IPV. Fathers for Change, an integrated out...
The purpose of the research is to evaluate whether routine screening for woman abuse in health care settings, as compared to no screening, does more good than harm. Recent reviews have identified the need for high quality research to understand 1) the actual impact on all women of instituting mass screening procedures to identify woman abuse and 2) the extent to which early identification through screening is effective in preventing or ameliorating important outcomes. The mai...
The purpose of this study is to see if using a computer kiosk to screen men and women for intimate partner violence victimization and perpetration is safe and effective. We hypothesize that screening will not result in any adverse events.
This study will develop and assess an innovative, high-reach, easily implementable, low-cost computer-delivered intervention (Safe and Healthy Experiences; The SHE Program) that will address known barriers in early identification and intervention with sheltered battered women with IPV (intimate partner violence) and substance use.
DOVE Home Visit Program is a brochure based intervention delivery by public health nurses which aims to prevent and reduce intimate partner violence against pregnant and postpartum women and their infants. The purpose of the study is to test the effect of home visits on reducing domestic violence and improving the lives of pregnant women and their children.
The purpose of this study is to examine whether adding a brief alcohol treatment to standard violence intervention programs for women will result in reduced drinking, reduced partner violence perpetration, and reduced partner violence victimization. We hypothesize that, relative to standard care, women receiving the additional brief alcohol intervention will have better alcohol use and partner violence outcomes.
Intimate partner violence (IPV), also known as domestic abuse, is a leading cause of non-fatal injury in women worldwide. 1 in 6 women attending surgical fracture clinics have a history of IPV in the past year. Given the high prevalence and costs associated with IPV, there is a need to identify health outcomes associated with IPV, the incidence of new and worsening cases of IPV, and resource use among IPV victims. This prospective cohort study of women with fractures and dislo...
This trial will test the impact of a culturally tailored and theory driven primary intimate partner violence prevention intervention with Spanish speaking Latino men.
The high rates of HIV infection in women have brought into sharp focus the problem of violence against women. There is a growing recognition that women and girls' risk of and vulnerability to HIV infection is shaped by deep-rooted and pervasive gender inequalities violence against them in particular. The links between intimate partner violence and HIV/AIDS are explained by biological as well as sociocultural and economic factors.
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a serious public health problem costing $8.3 billion per year with over $6 billion in direct medical and mental health costs alone. Alcohol is present in most incidents of IPV, and contributes to more frequent and severe IPV incidents. These facts, coupled with the fact that there are no effective interventions for IPV, make understanding mechanisms through which alcohol is associated with IPV critical.
This study tested the effectiveness of computer-assisted screening for identifying patients at risk of intimate partner violence (IPV) in a Canadian family practice. It was hypothesized that the use of computer-assisted screening among female patients would lead to higher rates of IPV discussion-opportunity and IPV detection during medical consultations, compared to patients receiving standard medical care.
The goal of this project is to pilot-test an instrument that is designed to assess the relationship between persons who use controlling behavior with intimate partners, as a risk factor for perpetrating intimate partner violence, and workplace productivity. The goal is to validate a survey instrument that can be applied to other workplace settings to measure productivity losses associated with controlling and aggressive behavior, which will serve to inform the development of w...
The objective of the study is to evaluate the impact of Engaging Men in Accountable Practice (EMAP) on the prevention of violence against women and girls in North and South Kivu (DRC). The study is conducted jointly by the World Bank's Africa Gender Innovation Lab and the International Rescue Committee (IRC). EMAP is a program developed and implemented by the IRC to engage men to reflect on how to reduce and prevent intimate partner violence through 16 weekly group discussion s...
The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility and acceptability of Safe South Africa, an integrated intervention for preventing HIV and Intimate Partner Violence perpetration for male adolescents 15-17 years of age.
Violence has immediate effects on women's health, which in some cases, is fatal. Physical, mental and behavioural health consequences can also persist long after the violence has stopped. Violence against women and girls occurs in every country and culture and is rooted in social and cultural attitudes and norms that privilege men over women and boys over girls. Research consistently finds that the more severe the abuse, the greater its impact on women's physical and mental he...
A total of around 351.500 consecutive patients admitted to Dep. of Trauma Surgery, Medical University Vienna, from 01/2008 to 12/2015 have been considered eligible for inclusion. Out of this patient population a total of 1.406 cases associated with IPV have been consecutively and prospectively included in our in-house screening service for IPV cases. Data collection was performed prospectively and statistical evaluation was performed retrospectively, approved by local IRB (1453...
Although abuse by an intimate partner is very common and has serious negative effects on women's health, few studies have been done to test ways to increase safety for women in abusive relationships. This study will test a telephone intervention for women who report physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse within the past 12 months, to see if - women use more safety behaviors and access more community resources - chronic pain, fatigue, depressive, and post-traumatic str...
Violence against women and girls is increasingly recognized as a major global public health and development concern. However, evidence on what forms of intervention should be prioritised is severely lacking. A cluster randomized controlled trial (The Intervention with Microfinance for AIDS & Gender Equity - IMAGE Project) in rural South Africa combined a group-based microfinance intervention with a participatory gender and HIV training curriculum for loan participants and showe...
A recent report by the World Health Organization demonstrated that 30 % of women worldwide have been victims of intimate-partner violence (IPV). IPV is a public health problem thus it seems important to propose relevant care. It is difficult to carry out an effective therapy. Psychological care is based on cognitive abilities but these women have cognitive impairment. Few studies investigated their cognitive dysfunction. Investigators suggest in this study an exploration of the...
OBJECTIVE: To investigate if, among women exposed to physical violence during pregnancy, does a targeted intervention consisting of safety planning and referral to community advocacy services decrease rates of adverse perinatal outcomes including antepartum hemorrhage or infection, low birthweight, and perinatal death. DESIGN: A randomized controlled trial. SETTING: Surrey Memorial Hospital and BC Women's Hospital in British Columbia, Canada PARTICIPANTS: Pregnant women exper...
This study investigates the effect of a video which teaches 15 safety behaviours for women subject to intimate partner violence (IPV) during pregnancy. Half of the women screening positive for IPV during pregnancy will view the intervention video. The other half will view a control video.
