Categorical versus dimensional: Looking at male perpetration of intimate partner violence through a dimensional lens

by Erika Feeney
In order to prevent and stop intimate partner violence, psychologists must first understand the perpetrators of this violence. This study design proposal looks at the ways in which past research which has looked at these perpetrators categorically, both in terms of their mental health and in terms of typologies, and has lacked consensus. This proposal hypothesizes that if these male perpetrators were looked at through a dimensional lens, then they would be better understood.
