3308.0 Interventions focused on Perpetrators of Family Violence

Monday, November 8, 2010: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
This session seeks to bring to the fore, community-based interventions to address family violence that are focused on the perpetrators. In this session, special attention will be paid to new and innovative strategies that have promise and are being developed in community contexts. Using social justice values as part of the rationale for these strategies and clearly demonstrating how these values are integrated into the intervention is important. Overall, these presentations should seek to educate the public health community about new and innovative approaches that can add to the repertoire of strategies available to professionals and community members alike.
Session Objectives: Describe best-practice efforts to address family violence. Explain new strategies being used with perpetrators of family violence. Evaluate the effectiveness of community strategies to address family violence.
