International Psychogeriatrics, 07/17/2012
Yan E et al. – It is suggested that intimate partner violence (IPV) in older couples is a complex phenomenon that is closely intertwined with other forms of domestic violence, including spousal violence, child abuse, in–law conflicts, and elderly adult abuse. Thus, before the authors have more definitive and concrete evidence that IPV in older couples should definitively come under the category of elder abuse or IPV, it is advisable to treat it under its own separate category of family violence.
