This comparative study investigates victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) by multiple partners (MP) and victims of IPV by one partner. We look for group differences and if there are victim-related risk factors for IPV by MP. Through a systematic literature review, we have identified some categories of risk factors: history of childhood domestic trauma, drug abuse, IPV characteristics, and attachment style. These categories are now being tested applying a sample of (N=150) women with no (n = 50), one (n = 50) and multiple (n =50) violent successive partners. Preliminary results will be discussed in the oral presentation.
