Abstract:

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a major criminal justice concern that has strong implications for the mental health of women victims. Among IPV-exposed women, fear has been studied as a major means of control and an important predictor of help-seeking. Further, IPV-exposed women experience a high level of posttraumatic stress, depression, and substance use. Yet few studies have investigated how fear of partner in past abusive relationships impacts the association between current IPV and these mental health correlates.

In an urban community in New England, the personal experiences of 212 IPV-exposed women were examined. Women’s experiences of current psychological, physical and sexual IPV, childhood abuse, posttraumatic stress, depression symptoms, and substance use were assessed along with fear of their partner in past abusive relationships. Almost all women reported past IPV (86 %), though fear of their partners varied (e.g., 20% were never fearful, 34% were a little or somewhat fearful, and 32% were very fearful). Structural equation modeling will be used to test how fear of partner in past abusive relationships impact current mental health and substance use. Results will advance knowledge regarding mechanisms through which past IPV experiences affect women’s current functioning and implications for intervention will be discussed.
