Implications for Prevention and Intervention: A More Person-Centered Approach
One of the most important functions of any theoretical framework is to guide practice in the field. The accumulated data on co-occurrence provide strong evidence that prevention and intervention of all types of violence should be organized around the full context of individuals’ experiences, not narrowly defined subtypes of abuse or violence. The research discussed in previous chapters provides new urgency to calls to better integrate victim services. Additionally, services aimed at perpetrators or would-be perpetrators of particular violence types could be more effective if they address the fact that many perpetrators offend in multiple contexts and often have victimization histories. In this chapter, we discuss how recognizing the interrelations among different forms of violence can guide prevention, assessment, and intervention.
