Stuart's research has tested theoretical models of intimate partner violence (IPV). In men and women arrested for IPV, alcohol problems by both partners contribute to physical abuse. His research has shown that IPV is overrepresented in populations in treatment for substance abuse and that substance abuse is overrepresented in people court mandated to violence programs. In alcohol patients, IPV declines after treatment, and IPV is higher among relapsed alcoholics relative to remitted alcoholics.
