Family Violence - The Case for a Comprehensive Response (Workshop 108)
Family violence includes the whole array of violence occurring among family members — intimate partner abuse, elder abuse, sibling abuse, child abuse, parent abuse, and more. In this era of specialization, family violence professionals tend to specialize in one of the forms of the violence and provide services to address that form in isolation of the other forms. Such specialization has contributed to the use of interventions that are incomplete or inadequate. This workshop considers all forms of family violence, their competing interests, and the challenges that each presents and calls upon service providers to respond to family violence comprehensively.
