New Special Collection: Intimate Partner Homicide Prevention

Monday, July 18, 2011

Intimate Partner Homicide Prevention (July 2011) explores the most tragic consequence of domestic violence and offers a variety of tools and information towards its prevention. The collection outlines the scope of the problem; provides an overview of tools and strategies for assessing danger or the risk of lethality in domestic violence cases; recommendations and approaches for utilizing the fatality review process to prevent intimate partner homicide; materials describing various systems’ responses to domestic violence and efforts to prevent homicide; resources to assist advocates in helping to frame the issue through media response and community mobilization; and resources addressing the grief and trauma experienced by loved ones of those whose lives are lost to domestic violence.

This resource was developed by VAWnet and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence, with contributions from the Battered Women’s Justice Project, Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
