DV/IPV Sexual Assault

NISVS 2010 Report on Intimate Partner Violence

Just released is the CDC’s report Intimate Partner Violence in the United States 2010. You can read the full report, along with an executive summary and FAQs here. It’s by far a more in-depth look at the issue than what we’ve seen published by DOJ, and includes implications for prevention, as well as a look at the intersections of IPV, sexual violence and stalking. Healthcare providers, pay close attention to Chapter 7: Services and Disclosure Related to Intimate Partner Violence Victimization. Excellent information there for funding proposals and arguments for service expansion.
