About this item

This book brings together an international collection of researchers and practitioners from a range of fields—including sociology, social work, psychology, law, public health and medicine, and victims services and advocacy—to examine promising, innovative strategies and programs for preventing intimate partner violence (IPV). The interdisciplinary contributions both discuss findings from evaluations of current IPV prevention programs and identify gaps in knowledge, paying particular attention to the needs of underserved groups like racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants and refugees, and members of LGBTQ communities. Among the many issues addressed are primary prevention programs that target adolescents and young adults, strategies specifically designed to engage men and boys in IPV prevention, IPV screening in various settings, the impact of the criminalization of IPV on minority populations, restorative justice programs, interventions for women who use violence, and innovative shelter programming to prevent revictimization. Uniting the major themes examined throughout the book, the concluding chapter delineates paths to more effective prevention strategies by highlighting ways that all stakeholders can work more effectively toward reducing violence.
