Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Links Among Multiple Forms of Violence

Violence takes many forms, including intimate partner violence, sexual violence, child maltreatment, bullying, suicidal behavior, and elder abuse and neglect. These forms of violence are interconnected and often share the same root causes. They can also all take place under one roof, or in a given community or neighborhood and can happen at the same time or at different stages of life. Understanding the overlapping causes of violence and the associated protective factors for individuals and communities is important, and can help us better address violence in all its forms.
