Morewitz evaluates the impact of intimate partner abuse on maternal and child health. Drawing on quantitative and qualitative findings from the Stalking and Violence Project, case studies from a clinical psychologists private practice, and a review of the literature, he describes new abuse patterns against pregnant women and their unborn babies. One of his central assumptions is that partner abuse in a patterned set of behaviors developed by the batterer to exert power over women in intimate and non-intimate relationships.
