"For decades, research examning different forms of interperosla violence has proceeded in relative isolation. Large literatures have been generated on child maltreatment, bullying, intimate partner violence,teen dating violence, sexual violence, and elder abuse with few systematic efforts to understand connections among them...This work indicates that the overlap among different forms of violence, even seemingly diverse and unrelated forms, is so great that it can be difficult to identify a group of individuals who have sustained or perpetrated only a single form of violence (see Chapter 2). The high level of violence co-occurrence has important implications for research, intervention and public policy, and the purpose of this book is to address how knowledge generated in multiple domains can be organized into a larger framework that that illuminates the commonalities and patterns among them. [The authors] believe that greater recognition of these connections will lead to a more contextualized and comprehensive approach to research, prevention, and intervention on all forms of violence." (from opening pages of Chapter 1, p. 1-2).
