Review

'Perpetrators of IPSV is an important and valuable contribution to our understanding of this widespread, yet understudied, form of violence. Noted scholars, practitioners and survivors offer new research as well as extensive intervention and prevention recommendations. This volume will prove most useful for all of us working to end sexual violence.' - Kersti Yllo, Wheaton College, U.S.A 

'The subjects of this comprehensive, well-researched, and disturbing collection are the men who have sexually assaulted a partner and the effects on the women and children who are victimized by them. The book is long overdue, much needed, and path-breaking.' - Evan Stark, Rutgers University, U.S.A

'McOrmond-Plummer, Easteal and Levy-Peck have made a critical contribution to the field of violence against women with this multi-disciplinary book that addresses a highly understudied phenomena.

For far too long there has been a dearth of information about men who sexually abuse their intimate partners. This important book assembles leading experts from a variety of disciplines to address this void in an important way. For those who are working in the community with perpetrators, those working with women who have been victimized by their partners and others committed to ending violence against women, this book is essential reading.

This book contributes in an important way to furthering our understanding of IPSV as 'real rape' with very real consequences for society and most importantly, the lives of women who are victimized by their partners.' - Raquel Bergen, Saint Joseph's University, U.S.A

Product Description

Research shows that intimate partner sexual violence (IPSV) is the most common form of sexual assault. Professional focus is often on the victim, but more information is needed about the perpetrators in order to have a fuller understanding of this crime. The very nature of IPSV – sexual assault within a relationship – means that professionals who work with victims must understand the dynamics of perpetrators as well.


This new book will distill the knowledge that exists about perpetrators of IPSV. It includes chapters by authors who have worked directly with IPSV perpetrators and covers important subjects such as addressing IPSV in batterer groups, police management strategies, the danger of IPSV to children, the different types of violence perpetrators use, and prevention approaches for young people. There is also still a widely held view that rapists are strangers in alleyways. This book is intended to educate professionals about who is a perpetrator, as well as to highlight the very real danger these perpetrators represent, including a heightened risk of lethality.


The contributors look at the social context of IPSV and the implications for prevention and provide hands-on knowledge to practitioners in a number of fields. The book may also be used within the academic context in fields such as social work, sociology, counseling, psychology, medicine, nursing, criminal justice, and law.
