This dissertation explores Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) through a transpersonal and depth psychological lens. Utilizing current IPV research and writings, a critical hermeneutic method is used to explore cross-discipline, integrated, and transpersonal views of IPV to construct an expanded view of intimate relationship. From this exploration emerges a conception of IPV as a transpersonal, relational, and multiple group of phenomena in which aggression and violence are often a feature; sometimes a central feature. This dissertation extends IPV research by suggesting integration of various perspectives for modeling violence in relationship dyads and the individuals in those dyads that may lead to more effective responses to aggression and violence occurring in intimate relationships. It also extends interpersonal conceptions of IPV by engaging in a dialogical and critical hermeneutic exploration of transpersonal aspects of IPV. Implications and recommendations for IPV research and interventions are also briefly discussed.
