This chapter analyses and situates men’s IPV experiences within the wider patterns of family violence by touching on other violent relationships that can occur within the family including child-to-parent and sibling violence. This brief review of the literature on the impact and the experiences of men and boys who are victims of types of family violence other than IPV, indicates that their experiences have been understudied and unexplored. Consequently, the knowledge base about their needs and experiences with regards to interventions that aim to tackle the violence against them remains limited. By focusing on the impact and victimisation experiences of different forms of family violence on men our aim is to challenge the hegemonic, patriarchal gendered stereotyping that denies the status of victimhood to men and perceives them as intact of violence and adversity.
