3414.0 Violence Epidemiology

Monday, November 9, 2009: 4:30 PM
This session discusses several studies related to the epidemiology of violence. One presentation will address the prevalence of and factors associated with political violence victimization in Bangladesh. The other four presentations focus on US-based studies: one study of one of the sequelae of violence victimization among urban women, one study on the relationship between suicide and DWI arrests, and two studies evaluating factors associated with intimate partner violence.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe the relationship between neighborhood- and individual-level violence and unwanted pregnancy in low-income, minority populations. 2. Describe the possible extent of exposure to organized and political violence as well as overall human rights abuses in Bangladesh. 3. Identify the unique contribution of both individual- and neighborhood-level factors to risk of intimate partner victimization and perpetration.
