Abstract

This article addresses two primary issues: partner violence and sexual assault. Partner violence refers to the infliction of harm by one intimate partner to the other, with the intention of causing pain or controlling the other's behavior. Sexual assault is sex without consent, obtained by force or threat. Sexual assault can be perpetrated by spouses, lovers, dates, relatives, parents, acquaintances, and strangers.
