Author: JONATHAN K. APPEL and DOHEE KIM-APPEL
Published in JHHSA, Vol. 29 No. 2
A significant number of family violence cases involve what
are called co-occurring cases of violence. What this means is that if a
child is being maltreated, there is a high likelihood that domestic
violence is also occurring between the parents. When these cases
occur, several different human services systems may get involved. This
paper examines the concept of co-occurring violence and addresses the
fragmented response system. Suggestions for improving the response
to co-occurring violence are provided.
