Intimate Partner Violence

A Guide for Psychiatrists Treating IPV Survivors

Treating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer IPV Survivors

People grouped under the LGBTQ umbrella may have any or a combination of a variety of identities including: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, gender non-conforming, genderqueer, pansexual, same gender loving, Two-Spirit, non-binary, gender fluid, agender, and many others (See Appendix for breakdown of LGBTQ-associated terms and concepts).

LGBTQ IPV survivors face increased barriers to obtaining consistent access to culturally competent services. Without access to identity-affirming advocacy, intervention and other critical services, LGBTQ IPV survivors will continue to suffer from violence and adverse consequences of victimization.
