Notes:  This US journal article explains that while the health consequences of domestic violence are being increasingly acknowledged, there is still insufficient empirical evidence of the risk factors of intimate partner violence (IPV) or successful theoretically-supported interventions. The authors, informed by existing literature, suggest that the concept of shame is significant in examining posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Their literature review highlights the connections between shame, PTSD and IPV, and puts forward recommendations for future research. The article concludes by discussing the usefulness of this conceptual exploration in developing clinical interventions for the perpetrators of violence.
