Abstract

In the last decade, Pathological Affective Dependence (PAD)—as a risk factor for Intimate Partner Violence (IPV)—has undergone considerable attention among clinical and social psychologists. However, the psychological nature of PAD has been described in discordant terms throughout the literature. We try to give a clear definition of the construct (1), theorize a first cognitive model of PAD (2), and describe the prototypical characteristics of a pathological affective dependent (in terms of goals, anti-goals, and dysfunctional self-other beliefs) based on goal-oriented theories (3). We finally present (4) the resulting specific TADs (typical affective dependent) profiles (Saver, Unworthy, Traumatic, and Mixed). We believe that our manuscript on the PAD makes a significant contribution to achieve the fifth UN Sustainable Development Goal aimed at eliminating “all forms of violence against all women”: in fact, understanding the psychological risk factors of IPV as PAD is an essential protective factor for designing effective prevention social strategies against IPV. Moreover, this work contributes to achieving one of the “outcome targets” of the sixteenth UN Sustainable Development
Goal. It is dedicated to the promotion of “peaceful and inclusive societies”, through the reduction of
all forms of violence and the protection of children from abuse. Indeed, IPV strongly affects (physical
and mental) health and social sustainability of well-being. However, empirical studies on this topic
are limited and there is a lack of a theoretical model of PAD. This work represents a theoretical
starting point for a broader project aimed at building a cognitive-behavioral protocol and social
interventions for the reduction of negative consequences on IPV victims
