    The purpose of this study was to report the prevalence risk, and implications of comorbidity between partner violence and psychiatric disorders.


    Data were obtained from a representative birth cohort of 941 young adults through use of the Conflict Tactics Scales and Diagnostic Interview Schdule.


    Half of those involved in partner violence had a psychiatric disorder ; one-third of those with a psychiatric disorder were involved in partner violence.

    Individuals involved in sevete partner violence had elevated rates of a wide spectrum of disorders.
