Abstract

Introduction Intimate partner violence (IPV) among sexual minority people has been underestimated since few decades ago despite its spreading. The current systematic review aims to review and systematize studies on factors associated with IPV perpetration within this population. Methods Data search was conducted on EBSCO and PubMed considering articles published until July 2022, and 78 papers were included. Results Although methodological limitations can afect the results found, the data demonstrated an association between IPV perpetration and psychological, relational, family of origin-related and sexual minority-specifc factors, substance use, and sexual behaviors. Conclusion The fndings emerged highlight the importance of a multidimensional approach to tackle IPV perpetration among sexual minority people and limit relapses, while increasing individual and relational wellbeing. Policy Implications The empirical evidence emerged can contribute to the development of policies and services tailored for sexual minority people victims of IPV, to date still scarce and often inefective.
