What is Intimate Partner Violence? Intimate partner violence (IPV), which is often called domestic violence, occurs when a current or former intimate partner (e.g., boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse) harms, threatens to harm, or stalks their partner. Violence can be emotional, verbal, physical, or sexual. It can include stalking or threats.
