Event description

Description

All are invited to attend a research lecture about the social work grand challenge to stop family violence with Dr. Richard Barth and Dr. Jill Messing, two national leading experts in child maltreatment and intimate partner violence. Co-sponsored by the Mandel School's Office of Research Administration and the Doctoral Program.

Child maltreatment and intimate partner violence overlap, but research and intervention on these topics are quite divergent in terms of methods, beliefs about the importance of family unification, emphasis on family-focused interventions, and assumptions about the most significant contributors to family violence. This discussion will consider these divergences and reflect on the emphasis of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on “connecting the dots” between types of family violence. We will explore ways that these largely separate areas of research and intervention might better align for greater impact.
