Answer the following Question after reading the article In your second primary reading, “Intimate Partner Violence:
An Overview of the Existing Theories, Conceptual Frameworks, and Definitions” (Gulina, Tikhomandritskaya, & Burelomova, 2018), the authors argue their research cannot narrow the reasons for domestic violence to only one theory.
Part of the reason for that is the difficulty in defining “violence.” In your Discussion Board post, (a) explain your understanding of self-directed violence, interpersonal violence, and collective violence and (b) explain which of the three contribute more to domestic violence in the United States and why.
