Intimate Partner Violence
Intimate partner violence is a serious public health problem. According to the Center for Disease Control, nearly 5.3 million intimate partner victimizations occur each year among U.S. women ages 18 and older. This violence results in nearly 2 million injuries and nearly 1,300 deaths. This session discusses many of the issues related to preventing, tracking, and helping those that have been affected by this problem.
Learning Objectives: By the end of this session the participants should be able to 1. summarize the current research concerning intimate partner violence with various populations groups such as African-Americans and police officers; 2. identify components of a successful intimate partner violence prevention programs for both the victim and the perpetrator; and 3. describe challenges and barriers to intimate partner violence prevention efforts.
