Defining and operationalising IPV


Einstein once said not everything important can be measured. However, an accurate assessment of the magnitude of a problem certainly helps elevate its importance.

In this presentation, STRIVE Chief Executive Lori Heise reviews what is known about getting accurate measures of violence throughout a woman's lifespan. 

With an emphasis on intimate partner violence (IPV), the presentation reviews traditional approaches and introduces some new ones, while debating different approaches to identifying a case of abuse.

This is an extended version of the presentation given for STRIVE Learning Lab in May 2013.
