This paper provides an overview of the characteristics of intimate partner violence (IPV) and the pattern of these destructive relationship patterns within military families.
Intimate partner violence (IPV) represents a destructive relationship pattern within military families. This article provides an overview of IPV offender characteristics at large, followed by military-specific IPV perpetrator data. Next, military cultural factors germane to IPV, relevant perpetrator treatment modalities, and general interventional approaches (e.g., mentalization and mindfulness) applicable to military relational abusers are covered. This integrative review article aims to provide a comprehensive scientifically anchored clinical guidepost to therapeutically intervening with domestically violent military personnel.
