Situational violence is when a couple does not have enough conflict resolution skills and the arguments escalate and lead to violence, often less severe than you would see in DV/IPV relationships. One of the main differences between situational violence and DV/IPV is that there often is no clear victim, both members of the couple have escalated and might commit acts of violence. Also, there is accountability, remorse, regret, guilt, and awareness of the hurt that their actions caused (empathy), and a lack of trying to gain power and control between the conflicts. Often between conflicts there are attempts to repair the relationship and there is mutual respect and high regard for each other.
