This chapter explores the co-occurrence of physical intimate partner violence (IPV) with child physical abuse (CPA), risk factors and theoretical explanations for this overlap, and the implications this evidence has for research, policy, and practice. It notes that research findings highlight the need to adopt a systemic view and further explore and respond to patterns of family violence and abuse in research and practice. Numerous references.
