  Annotation: This federally funded report summarizes and synthesizes the vast and growing amount of empirical research on violence against women that is pertinent to service providers, specifically in the areas of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
  Abstract: This report funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice, attempts to synthesize research on violence against women for service providers in community settings, such as family service agencies, mental health centers, substance abuse treatment settings, and child protective service programs. These providers are extremely different or varied with respect to the centrality of violence against women within their professional roles, the extent of their knowledge about violence against women, and the extent of formal education and training in regards to such violence. The report covers several topic areas that include: health and emotional psychological effects; how abused women cope with ongoing violence; the effects on children exposed to intimate partner violence; and both prevention and intervention with victims and offenders. The report concludes with a discussion of gaps in the research literature and the implications of the research findings reviewed for practice with victims of violence against women and social policy.
