Stress and Health: The Case of Intimate Partner Violence
Decades of research show that stress is associated with the development of disease through complex pathways involving biological and psychosocial parameters. While intimate partner violence is unquestionably extremely stressful for victims and survivors, fairly little is known about how this particular stressor affects the known biological and psychosocial pathways leading to negative health outcomes. This presentation will provide an overview of the link between stress and health, explore some of the challenges associated with measuring stress in the context of intimate partner violence, and reveal findings from our own studies on these questions.
