Johnson's reaction to this debate-and the important topic of this book-is that there's a couple of form of intimate companion violence. a few reports deal with the kind of violence that's perpetrated basically by way of males, whereas others have become on the form of violence that girls areinvolved in in addition. simply because there was no theoretical framework delineating varieties of family violence, researchers have simply misinterpret one another's studies.

The moment significant debate comprises what percentage ladies are abused every year through their companions. Estimates variety from to 6 million. Johnson's reaction once more comes from this book's relevant subject matter. If there's multiple kind of intimate accomplice violence, then the numbers rely on what variety you are speaking about.

Johnson argues that household violence isn't a unitary phenomenon. in its place, he delineates 3 significant, dramatically varied, varieties of associate violence: intimate terrorism, violent resistance, and situational couple violence.
