Conference Goal
The goal of the Sixth National Conference on Health and Domestic Violence is to advance the field of health care's response to domestic violence. The conference will examine:
   
health impacts, co-occurring issues, health care responses, and policy implications related to survivors, children, perpetrators, and communities affected by domestic violence;
the intersectionality¹ of factors relevant to domestic violence - i.e., how the categories of race, class, ethnicity, religion, physical abilities, age, gender, sexual identities, geographic settings and communities interconnect with one another to produce the full complexity of personal experiences and to inform program strategies;
innovative practices, programs, and partnerships among health systems, providers, public health programs, legal systems, social service agencies, domestic violence agencies, and advocates that improve patient safety and health status at the local state, national and international levels;
recent research about risk factors, physical/mental health effects, health and advocacy-based strategies/programs;
policy implications of the above regarding identification, intervention and prevention.
   
¹Intersectionality is a theory, a methodology for research and a prism through which we can understand that people live multiple, layered lives derived from their identities, social history and the structures of power. The intersections of various identities produce substantively distinct experiences. Engaging with an intersectional analysis enables one to shape effective interventions, analyze social problems fully and promote more inclusive advocacy.
