Event description
Parenting and Intimate Partner Violence; Rebecca J Macy, Associate Dean for Research & Faculty Development - University of North Carolina

About this Event

Intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization is widespread among women with children and has negative consequences for both women’s and children’s well-being. Despite mixed evidence regarding the effect of IPV on women’s parenting, there is a continuing focus on mothering in the context of IPV, particularly in child welfare and child protection systems. To help respond to this focus, interventions have been developed that specifically target parenting among IPV-affected women. While research attention to such interventions is growing, it is not yet entirely clear which approaches, interventions, or programs are most effective in addressing the unique needs of women parenting in the context of IPV. Based on the presenter’s considerable program of research concerning women’s parenting in the context of IPV, which includes systematic research reviews as well as a number of her own community-engaged studies, this presentation will provide an overview of the current state of the intervention knowledge, as well as offer promising strategies for the future. Overall, the presentation will emphasize the importance of focusing on empowerment-based programming that considers women’s dual status as parents and violence survivors.
