IPV/Dating Violence




COMING SOON: Information on reporting IPV/Dating Violence at WOU


Intimate partner violence (IPV) is physical, sexual, or psychological harm by a current or former intimate partner or spouse. The partners do not have to be living together and can be the same or opposite sex. There are various patterns of abuse, each rooted in the abuser's need for power and control.
