The term “intimate partner violence” describes physical violence, sexual violence, stalking, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples and does not require sexual intimacy. CDC’s research and programs work to understand the problem of intimate partner violence and prevent it before it begins.
