Domestic Violence: The Forgotten Frontier
This webinar will describe the desperate need to bridge critical gaps that currently exist in domestic violence research and literature. We’ll cover improving batterer intervention programs to better address mental health needs of this population, improving access to services for children residing in homes where domestic violence occurs, improving support for caregivers victimized by violence, improving understanding of emotional/psychological injury often present in these homes, and the need to extend domestic violence family services to include pets.
Andrew Campbell (CEO/Founder of Campbell Research & Consulting) is an expert on domestic violence and the associated risks of harm for adults, children, and animals residing in homes where this violence occurs. Utilizing cutting-edge data analysis and a unique perspective on violence in the home, he provides education for agencies across the country and assists in developing more efficient and effective community responses to physical and emotional violence. Andrew’s several recent publications in major academic journals include his analysis of nearly 10,000 first responder reports and observations from the scene of domestic violence incidents and are among the first in academic literature to use law enforcement data to quantify risk of harm/injury in this manner.
