Our scholars work in a variety of areas such as intimate partner violence, child maltreatment, community and youth violence, firearm violence and accidental injury, homicide, self-harm and suicide, and the trauma that contributes to the occurrence of violence and which remains after violence takes place. These efforts span the three levels of prevention (primary, secondary, and tertiary) to Stop It – Fix It – and Live On.
