All eligible ER patients will be screened during study times for IPV victimization and perpetration. All victims will be followed at 1 week and 3 months to determine any adverse outcomes. Perpetrators will only be followed in the ED for adverse outcomes after screening. All patients who disclose IPV victimization or perpetration will get a list of community resources. Victims will be asked at follow up what resources they used.
