The purpose of this study was to test a proposed model for outcomes of intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization. This was the first study within the IPV field to conduct direct statistical comparisons between genders while accounting for differences in various types of IPV victimization. Outcomes examined include: anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, injuries, general physical health, and alcohol abuse. The hypotheses were tested using existing longitudinal data. The model was partially supported. The prediction of no gender differences in outcomes given the same type and level of IPV victimization was supported. However, only depression and injuries were significant outcomes of any of the IPV victimization types.
