Publication: COVID-19 and intimate partner violence: Prevalence of resilience and perceived stress during a pandemic
TSSW Faculty Members Dr. Fred Buttell, LCSW-BACS and Dr. Reggie Ferreira along with colleagues from the University of California Davis and Santa Clara University have published "COVID-19 and intimate partner violence: Prevalence of resilience and perceived stress during a pandemic" in the journal Traumatology.
According to the article's abstract, "this research aims to identify the group differences regarding resilience and perceived stress for those who identified as single, in a relationship not experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV), and those in a relationship experiencing IPV during the COVID-19 pandemic ... These findings provide empirical support for the contention that public health measures put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19 might have negative, unintentional consequences for people experiencing IPV and mental health issues."
