CEZARIO, Ana Claudia Ferreira; FONSECA, Diogo Simões; LOPES, Natalice do Carmo  e  LOURENCO, Lélio Moura. Intimate partner violence: a comparison of indices in hetero and gay relationships. Temas psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.3, pp. 565-575. ISSN 1413-389X.

Intimate partner violence (IPV) may be perpetrated by men and women. However, is more often addressed at heterosexual relationships by literature featuring only women as victims and men as their primary aggressor. Because of this, in the face of new social and families structures, it is important to address violence unrestricted relationships or gender. Thus, this paper presents the results of two systematic reviews, one about the VPI in homosexual relationships and another on IPV in heterosexual relationships which the men have been the victims of their respective wives/girlfriends. The results were obtained through comparative analysis and Chi-square test getting up a full sample of 196 publications. Some categories as victims, aggressors and intervention had presented statistically significant differences with p bellow .05. Others were compared through descriptive statistics, for example, principals publications countries as United States (65) and Brazil (3) in the systematic review of IPV against men and (19) and (18) respectively in the review of IPV in homosexuals relationships. Therefore this work proposes an extended analysis of IPV in order to contribute to future preventions and interventions, regardless of the relationships ways or sexual orientation of its partners.
