Abstract :
[en] Objectives : The aim of this study was to ana- lyse retrospectively the profile of female victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) within the population of victims of assault and battery seen in expertise at the Forensic Ins- titute of Liège. Method : Overall, 678 files were analysed. The proportion, nature and type of IPV were determined, as well as the profile of the victims. The link between the socio-economic profile and the seriousness of the sequelae was analysed on the basis of the Chi-square test. Results : 8,4 % of the files concerned IPV, of which 93,0 % were female victims. All the victims had suffered physical domes- tic violence and 55,5 % of the victims cumulated at least two forms of violence. According to Johnson’s typology, 56,6 % of IPV cases may be considered as «Situational Couple Violence» and 43,4 % as «Intimate Terrorism». We have not demonstrated a link between the socio-economic profile and the severity of the sequelae. Conclusion : There are differences between the profile of victims of IPV accor- ding to the literature and the profile of victims seen at the IML. Subject to these differences, we have not found a link between the socio-economic status and the severity of the sequelae of IPV victims.
