The MASIC-S is a modified, shortened version (Rossi, Applegate, Beck, Timko & Holtzworth-Munroe, 2022; Rossi, Applegate, Tomlinson & Holtzworth-Munroe, 2023) of the original MASIC (Holtzworth-Munroe, Beck, & Applegate, 2010)

The MASIC-S is a screening tool for intimate partner violence and abuse (“IPV/A”, also known as domestic violence or “DV”) and related concerns between current or past intimate partners (spouses or significant others). The questions in the MASIC-S primarily address behaviors that are associated with severe or concerning levels of DV.
