Violence against Deaf Women: Effect of Partner Hearing Status
Anderson, Melissa L.; Kobek Pezzarossi, Caroline M.
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v19 n3 p411-421 Jul 2014
Using a sample of Deaf female undergraduate students, the current study sought to investigate the prevalence, correlates, and characteristics of intimate partner violence victimization in hearing-Deaf and Deaf-Deaf relationships. Initial results suggest that similarities in hearing status and communication preference are associated with increased levels of negotiation within these relationships. However, compatibility in these areas did not co-occur with significant decreases in physical, psychological, or sexual partner violence. Recommendations for future research as well as implications for clinical and educational practice are outlined.
