Violence Against Women

List of Articles

  • Profiling Domestic Violence
    Scientific investigation of the problem of domestic violence is a relatively recent endeavor. It is only within the past 30 years that violence against women has been acknowledged nationally and internationally as a threat to the health and rights of women as well as to national development. This chapter illuminates the different faces of violence, from the "invisible" suffering of society's most vulnerable individuals to the all-too-visible tragedy of societies.

  • Elder Abuse
    Incorporating screening related to elder abuse and neglect into these encounters will increase identification of abuse. Health care providers should assess patients for elder abuse and respond to patients who are victims of elder abuse as they would to domestic violence in general.
