The American Journal of Preventive Medicine has released new research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the lifetime economic burden of intimate partner violence among adults in the United States. Following CDC’s “Lifetime Economic Burden of Rape Among U.S. Adults,” this new study takes into account medical costs, lost productivity, criminal justice activities, and other costs such as victim property loss or damage. Understanding the costs of violence can help build the case for prevention. On this webinar, presenters from PreventConnect, the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence (NRCDV), and CDC explored the long-term economic cost of intimate partner violence and implications for prevention policy and practice.
