In October 2013, the National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence introduced the Health E-Bulletin, a semi-annual online publication that replaced the Family Violence Prevention and Health Practice E-journal. This new format reflects a paradigm shift in our vision for an e-publication that highlights innovative and emerging practices in addition to well-documented and rigorously evaluated interventions.
The first issue focuses on children and families experiencing domestic violence.
