1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced physical violence from an intimate partner. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, on average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men (NCADV, 2023). The root of this problem can be found in different ways. Depending on who the offender is, who the victim is, the individual's background, and mental issues all influence this kind of behavior. Although it might be difficult for some to understand how one can physically abuse another and claim that they love them, this presentation specifically offers a different view into interpersonal violence and the relation between the different parenting styles. That is, if there is any role of parenting styles in influencing children to become future offenders involved in dating violence. Starting from a young age, what experiences and trauma led one to become future offenders? The objective is to discover if there is a connection. It is important to study the data, using the Pathways to Desistance, in order to come to a conclusion as to what triggers this kind of behavior and stop it before it happens and not after it has already occurred. This presentation will review the previous literature on theories, studies, and data about interpersonal violence to uncover what, if anything, is missing.
