This chapter focuses on the difficulties in evaluating a sensitive and complicated topic: intimate partner violence. Topics discussed include challenges of evaluating design, measuring women's experiences of intimate partner violence, and evaluating interventions to reduce men's use of intimate partner violence. It argues that evaluations must explore multiple forms of intimate partner violence and consider the subjective experiences of women as well as more objective measures of frequency and severity.

Keywords: health promotion; domestic violence; intervention evaluation design; subjective experiences
