The past few decades have brought an increased awareness of the need to address intimate partner violence in school curricula and with younger students.

The March session of Hot Topics in Practice will review why this is so important now and how our public policies support the work.

This one-hour webinar will explore the background and history of how intimate partner violence has been viewed in the United States, consider the epidemiological data related to this health issue, and discuss how state laws can be used for prevention and response.

Register today to learn about evidence-based strategies and policy approaches for preventing intimate partner violence.

This webinar is supported by the Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center.

* This topic may be sensitive for some viewers. Please note, a recorded version will be available afterward for viewing at your own pace.
