Typically, a constellation of risk factors combine to result in a person experiencing or perpetrating intimate partner violence (IPV). Individual, relationship, community, social and cultural factors work together to enhance or reduce the likelihood of violence being perpetrated or experienced. This presentation will explore how risk and protective factors for intimate partner violence are identified. It will discuss conceptual models that have guided exploration of risk and protective factors. Comprehensive, multipronged approaches are required to address IPV, aligned with a long-term investment in policy, infrastructure and communities. Such an approach also needs to be supported by an overall strategic government framework. Lessons can be learnt from addressing other social issues such as the road toll. Exposure to IPV (as well as child maltreatment and other forms of family violence) has significant and wide ranging effects. Addressing the risk factors for IPV has the potential to impact on health, social, educational and justice outcomes as well as on the experience of violence.

This presentation is based on the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse Issues Paper,Understanding research on risk and protective factors for intimate partner violence (June 2016).
