3157.0 Social justice imperative: Intimate partner violence and sexual assault

Monday, November 8, 2010: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
The effect of intimate partner violence (IPV) and sexual assault (SA) on a woman's physical and mental well-being is well-established. However, there is limited research on the appropriate ways in which to both prevent and respond to IPV/SA. This session focuses on promising models of prevention and intervention.
Session Objectives: 1. Compare the effect of cultural norms on the incidence of rape and IPV as well as the related risk of suicide, homicide and poor health outcomes in developing countries and within different cultural groups in the United States. 2. Discuss 'Bystander Model' training of college students to prevent sexual violence on campus. 3. Identify partnership models of sexual violence and IPV prevention that provide screening and services directly to victim/survivors in the healthcare setting.
