Although research on intimate partner violence (IPV) has proliferated over the past 25 years, we still know relatively little about how battered women’s experience of abuse and its consequences changes over time, especially during and following specific community and legal interventions. This study was designed to deepen our understanding of IPV victims’ experience over time. Specific goals of the study were to examine (1) trajectories of intimate partner violence; (2) trajectories of employment and emotional wellbeing for victims of intimate partner violence; (3) potential predictors of these patterns, identified based on an ecological or contextual model (Bronfenbrenner, 1986), and (4) the prediction of revictimization. This model situates the individual and her characteristics within her larger social context by investigating the influence of a broader set of factors on individual-level phenomena. Thus, this study goes beyond individual characteristics of the batterer or victim to identify contributors to patterns of IPV that are rooted in the larger community and the battered women's social support system.
