Breaking the Silence - Public Health's Role in Intimate Partner Violence Prevention
This Grand Rounds session from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will explore intimate partner violence (IPV), a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans. The goal for public health is to recognize and prevent IPV. Topics include the following: "Societal Burden of IPV and Public Health's Relevance in Prevention"; "The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey"; "A State's Perspective on IPV Prevention"; and "National Opportunities for Preventing IPV." This session of Grand Rounds will explore prevention efforts aimed at reducing the occurrence of intimate partner violence through the promotion of healthy, respectful, nonviolent relationships. These prevention efforts must address change at the individual, relationship, community, and societal levels. Although not focused on campus-based IPV, this event may be of interest to campus violence prevention professionals.
