The Grand Challenge to Stop Family Violence

December 8, 2017 12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. | Lunch served at Noon
Mandel Community Studies Center, 11402 Bellflower Road Room 108

Child maltreatment and intimate partner violence overlap, but research and intervention on these topics are quite divergent in terms of methods, beliefs about the importance of family unification, emphasis on family-focused interventions, and assumptions about the most significant contributors to family violence. This discussion will consider these divergences and reflect on the emphasis of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on “connecting the dots” between types of family violence. We will explore ways that these largely separate areas of research and intervention might better align for greater impact. Learn more and register >>
