3. Résumé


«Data from the present study confirm the presence of IPV perpetration by both partners in couples in which the man is enrolled in a therapeutic program for abusive men; the percentage of women who have committed acts of violence (i.e., emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual coercion, and injuries) being substantially the same as that of their male partners who were confirmed male perpetrators of IPV. Results also indicate that there is no significant difference between the reports of men and women in terms of injuries and psychological aggression. However, a significant difference is observed for physical aggression and sexual coercion, as it is perceived by both partners. Indeed, women report being more physically violent than what their partner reports enduring.» (447-448)
