Ethnicity, Socioeconomic Status, and Abuse Severity

The impact of ethnicity, SES, and abuse severity on psychopathology following IPV was assessed. Overall, Caucasians reported more psychopathology than African Americans. Low SES predicted higher psychopathology for African Americans with high abuse severity, but not Caucasians at all abuse levels. Ethnic and SES sensitive interventions are discussed.
