This study examined correlates of unjury in a cohort of women who were partners of men enrolled in batterer treatment programs.
Cross-sectional data of 670 pairs of battered women and their partners were analzed.
Prevalence rates of women's self-reports of injury due to their partners'abusive behavior were computed and compared by couples'demographic and behavioral characteristics.
Men's use of severe tactics of abuse was the characteristic most significantly associated with injury (odds ratio=9.023,56.55).
Our findings under-score the need to botain information on the specific tactics used by couples to settle their disputes during universal screening by practioners.
