Examples of past and current research focusing on disclosure, leaving, and recovery processes among victims of IPV as well as risk and protective factors for IPV perpetration will be discussed.

Specific attention is given to the development of Edwards’ program of research as a graduate student, including intellectual and financial resources that supported the development of her programmatic research.
