Addressing the impact of intimate partner violence on male victims of domestic violence in the United States

Domestic violence, also known as domestic abuse, battering or intimate partner violence occurs between people in an intimate relationship. Domestic violence against men can take many forms, including emotional, sexual and physical abuse, and threats of abuse. The fact that males can be the victims of domestic violence is increasingly recognized as a topic worthy of scholarly and social scrutiny. Females may engage in both emotional and physical abuse of their male partners. This article evaluated the empirical research that examined the impact of intimate partner violence on male victims from a conflict theoretical perspective.
