We are seeking manuscripts for a Special Issue highlighting advances or novel approaches to 1) defining or measuring different types of family violence; 2) determining the causes or risk indicators; 3) the primary, secondary, or tertiary prevention of different types of family violence; 4) evaluating the impact of interventions to respond to family violence, and 5) implementing interventions, programs or strategies to address family violence in a wide range of populations. Manuscripts focused on training and supports for public health and other health care/social care service providers to respond to issues of family violence are welcome. We are also seeking work that addresses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the prevalence of family violence, or novel strategies to identify and respond to individuals experiencing family violence during this public health emergency.
In the context of this Special Issue, family violence is defined as any form of abuse, mistreatment, or neglect that a child or adult experiences (or is exposed to) from a family member or from someone with whom they have an intimate relationship, including (but not limited to): child maltreatment, children's exposure to intimate partner violence, sibling violence, intimate partner violence, dating violence, or elder abuse. Manuscripts employing qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods approaches to research studies or program evaluations are encouraged, as well as papers that advance our understanding of novel methodological approaches to the study of family violence.
