LONDT, Marcel. She's not a victim! she's my wife! intimate partner violence: Fuelled by dangerous perpetrator attitudes. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2014, vol.50, n.4, pp.550-562. ISSN 2312-7198.

This study used mixed methodology research; chose 53 male and 47 female respondents through purposive sampling, selected intervention research: design and development methodological framework to develop guidelines, used a Canadian Risk Assessment Tool to "assess risk"/"predict dangerousness". The findings highlighted the need for "risk factor assessment", showing specific risk factors predicted violence, with sexual violence playing a role. Perpetrators disregard their partners as victims when sexual violence was employed. Qualitative data from female respondents showed that perpetrators use physical assault and sexual violence in their attacks, and their behaviours were fuelled by attitudes that supported/condoned intimate partner violence (IPV).
