Edleson's work on domestic violence & children receives national attention

Jeffrey EdlesonResearch by Professor Jeffrey Edleson, Ph.D., and colleagues at the Minnesota Center Against Violence and Abuse (MINCAVA) continues to receive national attention. A recent article in the NASW (National Association of Social Workers) News talked about Honor Our Voices, an online project that aims to help social workers and service providers better serve children exposed to domestic violence.

Honor Our Voices was created by MINCAVA and the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare in the School of Social Work. In addition, Edleson is consulting with officials in Baltimore County, Maryland, on developing a screening tool that would quantify the impact of domestic violence on children. He also was quoted in the Springfield (Missouri) News-Leader about his research on the link between domestic violence and child abuse.
