abstract
Domestic violence also known as Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a complex issue facing care givers and society today. This issue is making the headlines as people are less willing to accept it and grow more courageous about speaking out about it. The purpose of this study is to compare three main factors and the impact they have on a woman’s decision to leave an abusive relationship. Economics, self-efficacy and sense of responsibility to family are factors examined in this report in relationship to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs theory (1943). This qualitative study was conducted using personal interviews with persons having experienced IPV and professionals working with them. Methods used are regression analysis and a search for themes within the subject’s experiences. Results include having access to financial support and believing in the ability to take care of oneself as deciding factors in breaking from the abuse cycle. The results of these interviews point to the need for greater financial support when conducting interventions with intimate partner violence as well as a greater understanding that leaving an abusive relationship is a process and not an event.
