A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2024 | Viewed by 3845
Victimization through all forms of violence in close relationships constitutes a fundamental violation of both adults’ and children’s rights and integrity. Childhood adversity, such as exposure to intimate partner violence and child abuse, can have detrimental effects for the health and wellbeing both in the short term and in later adult life. This Special Issue welcomes contributions on the prevention of IPV and CA ranging from universal to indicated measures, for example, policy measures including changes to the law and guidance for practitioners, new organizational approaches, and research-based methods for prevention, assessment, support, and treatment. Contributions highlighting issues of interacting inequalities, diversity, and special vulnerabilities are especially welcome.
