Notes

Abstract: This study examines the effects of five patterns of violence between domestic partners on women's mental health: (1) unilateral female-dominated, (2) unilateral male-dominated, (3) symmetrical mutual, (4) mutual female-dominated, and (5) mutual male-dominated. A sample of 835 low-income, ethically diverse women in heterosexual relationships were interviewed. Violence was measured with the Severity of Violence Against Women/Men Scales, and mental health by the Hopkins Symptoms Check List. A majority of violent relationships were characterized by mutuality with most violence dominated by the male partner. Women in unilateral male-dominated relationships numbered 126, while 75 were in unilateral female-dominated relationships. Violence in mutually violent relationships was most predictive of women's mental health problems. Intimate partner violence is not simply unidirectional but characterized by mutual violence.
