Battering is not just about the violence. To understand all of battered women's protective strategies requires understanding the full spectrum of risks that they face. This chapter presents the variety of risks that can be posed by a batterer, including threats to children and other loved ones. It is important to recognize that many of these threats get worse when a woman tries to leave or make other changes in a relationship. Separation violence has long been recognized but it has not yet been incorporated into risk assessment and safety planning. This chapter also addresses gender and the reality of battering and the implications of recognizing the true range of threats for an understanding of gender patterns in domestic violence.

Keywords:   Batterers, threats, risks, separation violence, gender, battered women, domestic violence, intimate partner violence
