The third article is about a study conducted to determine if adult attachment and gender- role stress contributes to intimate partner violence in men. Authors McDermott and Lopez invited 497 heterosexual men in college to participate in an anonymous web survey (2013).

This article is significant to professional counsellors because they can usually have patients who are victims of violence.
