The Impact of Intimate Partner Violence on Immigrant Women’s Health
MetadataShow full item record
This study is aimed at exploring the literature regarding the incidence, nature, and impact of intimate partner violence (IPV) on women's health. I will explore the incidence, nature, and impact of IPV (IPV and violence against women (VAW) are used in this thesis as interchangeable) on women in countries around the world. I focus on IPV against women in general and on IPV against immigrant women in particular. Based on findings, I draw recommendations for clinicians working with (immigrant) women who are experiencing domestic violence and are victimized by IPV.
