The primary aim of this special issue is to explore the phenomenon of intimate partner violence within the military, with specific emphasis on sexual assault within partnered relationships. Topics of interest include unique risks associated with sexual intimate partner violence (e.g., other co-occurring forms of violence, effects on children), current military approaches to working with this population, and future approaches to improve prevention of and response to sexual intimate partner violence and other types of violence co-occurring in these relationships. This special issue will also consider how risks for and response to sexual intimate partner violence vary across military subpopulations such as single versus married personnel or among members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) community.

European Research on Children, Adolescents and Domestic Violence: Impact, Interventions and Innovations 

A special issue for Journal of Family Violence

Co-editors:

Carolina Överlien
Stephanie Holt
Maria José Magalhães

Estimated Publication Date: September 2017

The second European Conference on Domestic Violence was held in Porto, Portugal in September 2017. Nearly 500 European researchers, service providers, and policy makers were gathered to share and discuss new and emerging understandings, interventions, and strategies for prevention with the aim of further strengthening the evidence base and provide better help for the many individuals and families affected by domestic violence globally.
Following the success of the conference, a special edition of the Journal of Family Violence is scheduled for early in 2019, focusing on European research on children, adolescents and domestic violence. The guest editors of this special issue will be Carolina Överlien, Associate Professor of Social Work, Stockholm University, Sweden, and researcher at the Norwegian center of violence and traumatic stress studies (NKVTS), Oslo, Norway, Stephanie Holt, Associate Professor of Social Work, School of Social Work and Social Policy, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland and Maria José Magalhães, full professor in the Faculty of Psychology and Sciences of Education and full researcher in Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies, University of Porto, Portugal.
The special issue will have a particular focus on children and adolescents and will explore the following themes:
• The dynamics and/or epistemology of domestic violence from the perspective of children and adolescents
• Primary domestic violence prevention for children and adolescent in schools and communities
• The relevance of intersectionality in the lives of violence exposed children and
adolescents
• Approaches to including children and adolescents when researching and
understanding domestic violence
• Effective interventions and treatment for children and adolescents exposed to
domestic violence
Papers submitted for this special issue should report on research undertaken in or about
European countries. There is no requirement regarding the nationality of the researchers,
and papers do not necessarily need to have been presented at the European Conference on
Domestic Violence 2017. The editors invite scholars working across the social sciences and
related fields including social policy, sociology, politics, criminology, law, social psychology,
development and economics, as well as disciplines allied to medicine, health and wellbeing.
The Journal of Family Violence (JOFV) is a peer-reviewed publication committed to the
dissemination of rigorous research on preventing, ending, and ameliorating all forms of
family violence. JOFV welcomes scholarly articles related to the broad categories of child
abuse and maltreatment, domestic and partner violence, and elder abuse. Within these
categories, JOFV emphasizes research on physical violence, psychological violence, sexual
violence, and homicides that occur in families. Studies on families in all their various forms
and diversities are welcome.
JOFV publishes studies using quantitative, qualitative, and/or mixed methods involving the
collection of primary data. Rigorous systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and theoretical
analyses are also welcome. To help advance scientific understandings of family violence,
JOFV is especially interested in research using transdisciplinary perspectives and innovative
research methods. Because family violence is a global problem requiring solutions from
diverse disciplinary perspectives, JOFV strongly encourages submissions from scholars
worldwide from all disciplines and backgrounds.
