If either partner also chooses not to report the abuse it may continue and it would impact the child; the child could experience mental and behavioral problems. Therefore programs should be

Intimate Partner Violence Introduction Intimate partner violence (IPV) is defined as sexual, physical or psychological abuse by a current or past spouse or partner and is one of the largest public issues the Unites States faces today. It is estimated that roughly 15.5 million children live in a household effected by IPV in the United States (Gustafsson, Coffman, Cox 2014). Children who are effected by IPV are more likely to have behavioral issues along with their development being negatively impacted (O'Campo, Caughy, Nettles 2010).

Intimate partner violence can affect many individuals who are victims of abuse, and those who witness the abuse, especially children. No individual should fall victim of physical, psychological, emotional, and sexual abuse from a current or former partner.

The act of bringing awareness is needed, because it would “target community attitudes about IPV, increase opportunities for victim assistance through direct and indirect services, and increase accountability for perpetrators” (Klevens, Baker, Shelly, & Ingram, 2008, pg. 347). Women who are victims of intimate partner violence deserve all the help

Literature Review Articles found in the review of literature discussed various screening tools and methods that can be used to successfully identify women involved in intimate partner violence. Journals typically reporting on this topic were all known to be scholarly journals such as Journal of Perinatology, European Journal of Public Health, European Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, Nordic Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Maternal Child Health Journal and Journal of Clinical Nursing. Seven studies were found that investigated the prevalence of IPV in women during pregnancy using the Abuse Assessment Screen in various countries during different stages of pregnancy (Bunn et al., 2009; Hellmuth, Gordon, Stuart, & Moore, 2013; Keeling & Mason, 2011; Lutgendorf, Thagard, Rockswold, Busch, & Magann, 2012; Massumi Okada, Komura Hoga, Vilela Borges, Sartori, & Aparecida Belli, 2015; Roelens, Verstraelen, Van Egmond, & Temmerman, 2008).

I detected there were some immaturity that made me feel uneasy. So it gave the idea that maybe this film and issue was not a good choice. However, as I mentioned before, intimate partner violence is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. As recognized, women are either abused by their spouses or partner. There are several services, and social workers that can be of assistance for victim’s mental, physical, and emotional needs. Perpetrators are still individuals who have the opportunity to
