Five main forms of family violence are discussed: intimate partner violence, dating violence, child abuse and neglect, elder abuse and neglect, and sibling abuse. The authors highlight that due to its covert nature, much family violence remains unreported. The report identifies the need for further research in areas such as elder abuse and neglect, family violence against persons with disabilities, child and adolescent violence towards parents, and violence in same-sex relationships.
