After defining intimate partner violence and exploring society’s guiding fictions related to batterers and victim-survivors, this training deep dives into a socio-cultural and historical review of the connection between systemic oppression and intimate partner violence. This training highlights what has created the societal conditions for intimate partner violence to persist and what we can do to change the status quo.
