We see IPV as a public health issue, analogous to tobacco use or the presence of firearms in a house, with recognized effects on physical and mental health, as well as on children's well-being. Therefore, we believe it is important to routinely inquire with all clients about a history of IPV. The techniques and skills identified in this section can be adapted for any social work setting.
