Welcome to the Center on Domestic Violence
The goal of the Center on Domestic Violence is, ultimately, to end violence in the lives of women and children. In order for this to happen, three strategic approaches are needed:
- Leaders must be prepared with the full range of knowledge and skills necessary to creatively and effectively confront the challenges of intimate partner violence in society to today and contribute to the movement toward its end.
- Original research on promising solutions to domestic violence must be done and well distributed to inform quality intervention and prevention programming nation wide.
- Collaborative opportunities between academic professionals and domestic violence practitioners must be enhanced to promote community-informed methods of addressing domestic violence.
- Widespread incorporation of domestic violence information into the curriculum of professional schools to train attorneys, doctors, military personnel, clergy, therapists, teachers and other professions likely to encounter battered women or their children.
- Regular use of evidence-based research on domestic violence by practitioners, policy-makers and advocates to provide effective services to victims and advance promising solutions to the root causes of intimate partner violence.
- Well-trained leaders and managers for non-profit and public service organizations working to stop violence against women.
- Stable programs, more options in service provision, and organizations that become successful agents for change in their communities.
- Family violence service provision, policymaking and advocacy that directly confronts the social norms that enable violence against women.
