Sandra Bibiana Adames, Rebecca Campbell
Violence Against Women 2005, 11 (10): 1341-64
This study was a qualitative investigation of the conceptualization of intimate partner violence (IPV) among immigrant Latinas. The research approach used was naturalistic inquiry: conducting research maintaining minimal interference with the phenomenon of interest. Findings revealed that the immigrant Latinas in this study were aware of the poor quality of intimate relationships in their community, were knowledgeable about IPV, and understood that IPV is an extensive problem in the immigrant Latino community. In addition, the women recognized gender disparities and other ecological factors as central issues affecting their intimate relationships and leading to IPV.
