Action Team 4
Research & Dissemination
The Research and Dissemination Action Team has two main goals. Our first goal is to encourage the generation of rigorous and useful research to further our understanding of the etiology, prevention, and treatment of interpersonal violence. Our second goal is to reduce interpersonal violence and its effects by disseminating important research findings to practitioners and policy makers and promoting the translation of research into practice. We value partnerships between researchers and practitioners that drive the field of knowledge, program design, practice, advocacy, and policy.
