Surprisingly, little is known about how IPV perpetrators perceive the consequences of their violent behavior. This article describes the development and evaluation of the Perceived Consequences of Domestic Violence Questionnaire (PCDVQ). The PCDVQ is a 27 item self report instrument designed to assess the consequences of intimate partner violence (IPV) as perceived by the perpetrator. Data from 124 nontreatment seeking, male, IPV perpetrators recruited from the community provided support for the internal consistency of the PCDVQ. Participants reported an average of 9.97 (SD = 4.57) consequences. Scores on the PCDVQ significantly predicted motivation for change, [beta] = 0.19, t(113) = 2.03, p less than 0.05, and treatment seeking, [chi][superscript 2](df = 1) = 10.79, p less than 0.01, odds ratio = 1.27 (95% CI: 1.10 1.46). Clinical implications of this instrument are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
