A Review and Assessment of Intimate Partner Violence Interventions and Trainings for Service Providers and Frontline Staffedit
Despite a long history of various service providers’ interactions with the survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV), previous reviews of interventions for service providers addressing IPV have only focused on those employed in medical settings. This review closely examines evidence related to interventions for service providers and frontline staff in nonmedical settings to identify effective interventions to address IPV and assist IPV survivors. Using explicit criteria, 16 studies were included in this review. This review offers a synthesis of the 16 studies by illuminating types of the interventions, outcomes and their effectiveness, settings of the interventions, and their quality of design. Specific implications are discussed to guide future practice, research, and policy.
