A Systematic Response to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in Healthcare: Examining IPV Programs for Veterans

The Journal of Aggression, Maltreatment, and Trauma announces a forthcoming Special Issue on A Systematic Response to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in Healthcare: Examining IPV Programs for Veterans. We are seeking manuscripts that address a wide range of topics overviewing the spectrum of IPV related programs and services offered to Veterans, particularly in the VA Healthcare System, including education, prevention, intervention, and screening; gaps and challenges to addressing IPV within a healthcare system; and other topics such as safety planning and intervention. Topics may include services for those who experience or use IPV. We invite research with varying methodologies, including empirical studies, evidence-based treatment, primary and secondary research, qualitative and mixed methods, and program evaluation. Theoretical and conceptual articles will also be considered. Secondary analyses of administrative data should demonstrate significance and applicability to IPV programming at a systems level.

Reference to guest editors’ Federal positions is for information only. This request for papers is not an official Government activity and the views found within materials requested and presented are those of the authors and editors and do not necessarily represent the views of the Department of Veterans Affairs or its Components.
