COVID-19 and IPV

With the advent of COVID-19, many regular practices in IPV interventions were disrupted. What seems evident today is that the public health measures deployed to combat the spread of the virus had a serious negative impact on IPV survivors. Below are links to some studies my colleagues and I have published on the intersection of IPV and the pandemic, which I hope prove useful to other researchers and clinical providers.
