Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sexual violence and domestic violence are huge issues, still mostly hidden from view, yet widespread among society. Official numbers concerning its prevalence are underestimated due to cultural reasons, fear, and shame. Violence, no matter the form, deeply damages the wellness of a person, especially during physical and psychological development: adolescents are already undergoing a very challenging period in their life, and any form of violence may affect their health as well as the rest of their life.

For this reason, this Special Issue of the Future aims at deepening all aspects linked to violence experienced by adolescents: both sexual violence perpetrated by a stranger or a family member, and witnessed or domestic violence within the walls of their home.

Papers should focus on the current state of knowledge, with the purpose of finding out, detecting, and analyzing these situations. New research papers, reviews, case reports and conference papers are welcome to this Special Issue. We will accept manuscripts from different disciplines including epidemiology, proposals of new approaches, experiences of violence intervention centers all over the world, and risk and health impact assessments, including physical and psychological aspects.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in IJERPH.
