"In their own voices: A qualitative study of violence  against women and HIV in South Africa," Fox, A., Jackson, S., Hansen, N., Gasa, N., Crewe, M., Sikkema, K. Violence Against Women, 13(6): 583-602. 2007:  This study qualitatively examines the intersections of risk for intimate partner violence (IPV) and HIV infection in South Africa. Eighteen women seeking services for relationship violence were asked semistructured questions regarding their abusive experiences and HIV risk. Participants had experienced myriad forms of abuse, which reinforced each other to create a climate that sustained abuse and multiplied HIV risk. Male partners having multiple concurrent sexual relationships, and poor relationship communication compounded female vulnerability to HIV and abuse. A social environment of silence, male power, and economic constraints enabled abuse to continue. "Breaking the silence" and women's empowerment were suggested solutions.

The effect of childhood physical and sexual abuse on adolescent weapon carrying. Leeb RT, Barker LE, Strine TW. J Adolesc Health; 40(6): 551-8, 2007:  PURPOSE: To examine the link and explore a potential association between physical and sexual abuse and weapon carrying in a sample of youth. Weapon carrying has been linked to the perpetration of serious violence in youth. Ample evidence associates child maltreatment with the perpetration of delinquent and violent behavior, but there is little research on the relationship between child maltreatment and weapon carrying. METHODS: We analyzed cross-sectional data collected from students in a large survey of high-risk youth (n = 3487). Propensity score stratification was used to approximate a randomized experimental design to examine the effect of physical and sexual abuse on youth-reported weapon and firearm carrying. RESULTS: Approximately 25% of weapon carrying by girls was attributable to sexual abuse in early childhood. We found no relationship between sexual abuse and weapon carrying for boys. The association between physical abuse and weapon carrying was less robust and no gender difference was detected. CONCLUSIONS: Results indicate that exposure to certain forms of early childhood maltreatment may increase the probability of weapon carrying in adolescence, particularly for females. Sexual abuse prevention and intervention programs should incorporate personal safety alternatives to weapon carrying, and clinicians should be aware that sexually abused girls are at greater risk for weapon carrying than other maltreated youth.

Child Sexual Abuse: An Italian Perspective.  Cattaneo C, Ruspa M, Motta T, Gentilomo A, Scagnelli C. Am J Forensic Med Pathol; 28(2): 163-167. 2007:  The problem of child sexual abuse is a growing reality in Italy. The experience of over 200 children seen by the SVS (Soccorso Violenza Sessuale) Centre in Milan (the first Italian large-scale study) may give more information on the European situation. This study is a retrospective study based on information contained in the files of children beneath the age of 14 seen at the SVS Centre between May 1996 and May 2003, who arrived with a suspicion of child sexual abuse. Over 80% of all cases fell within the normal-aspecific category according to Adams' 2001 classification. This first Italian survey, though not based on substantiated cases but only on cases of suspected sexual abuse, supplies a perspective on a large northern European city such as Milan. Data seem similar to those published in other non-European studies, particularly as regards clinical signs observed. Thus, the results of this study, with all their limitations, start to give a perspective on the frequency and type of child population reaching this Italian center, what the scenarios are, what signs the children present and how infrequent it is to find clinical anogenital signs concerning for sexual abuse.

Evaluation of suspected child physical abuse. Kellogg ND. Pediatrics; 119(6): 1232-41. 2007:  This report provides guidance in the clinical approach to the evaluation of suspected physical abuse in children. The medical assessment is outlined with respect to obtaining a history, physical examination, and appropriate ancillary testing. The role of the physician may encompass reporting suspected abuse; assessing the consistency of the explanation, the child's developmental capabilities, and the characteristics of the injury or injuries; and coordination with other professionals to provide immediate and long-term treatment and follow-up for victims. Accurate and timely diagnosis of children who are suspected victims of abuse can ensure appropriate evaluation, investigation, and outcomes for these children and their families.

Trauma exposure and child abuse potential: Investigating the cycle of violence. Craig CD, Sprang G. Am J Orthopsychiatry; 77(2): 296-305. 2007:  This study was designed to ascertain the relationship between trauma exposure and child abuse potential, considering a number of demographic and trauma-specific factors. The sample consisted of 1,680 caregivers with open, substantiated cases of abuse or neglect who were evaluated at a university-based outpatient assessment and treatment center. As part of a larger battery of instruments, the participants completed the Child Abuse Potential Inventory (CAPI) and a trauma history screen. In partial support of the proposed hypotheses, univariate and multivariate analyses revealed important differences in CAPI scores between the no-trauma-exposure group and the child-only, adult-only, and child-adult exposure groups. In addition, the type of trauma, age, and gender proved to be powerful predictors of elevated CAPI scores. These findings advance understanding of the developmental and cumulative effects of trauma exposure and suggest a profile of individuals who may be at risk for developing characteristics similar to known physical abusers.

Rape blame as a function of alcohol presence and resistance type. Sims CM, Noel NE, Maisto SA. Addict Behav; ePub(ePub): ePub. 2007:  Attributions of rape blame may be related to variables such as alcohol presence and resistance type used during a sexual assault. The current study sought to assess participants' attributions of responsibility for a sexual assault based on these two variables through the use of several written scenarios. Two hundred and thirteen male and female college students participated in the study. Results indicated that responsibility ratings given to the victim varied by the presence of alcohol but not by resistance type. If the female target had been drinking, she was judged as being more responsible for the assault than if she had not been drinking. However, how she resisted the assault did not affect ratings of her responsibility. Additionally, participant gender was found to not be an important factor for attributing blame to the woman target. Future research should focus on two important factors: 1) how participants' judgments of blame may change during actual alcohol administration and 2) how the use of video, rather than written vignettes, may produce stronger effects.

Effects of social desirability on students' self-reporting of partner abuse perpetration and victimization. Bell KM, Naugle AE. Violence Vict; 22(2): 243-56. 2007:  Little is still known about the degree to which social desirability affects reports of partner abuse. The current study builds on existing research exploring the relationship between social desirability and partner abuse reports by analyzing 49 male and 155 female students' responses to the Revised Conflict Tactics Scale (CTS2) and the Marlowe-Crowne Social Desirability Scale (MCSDS). Sex differences were not associated with partner abuse rates, regardless of type, severity, and violence role. Women had significantly higher social desirability scores than men, and women's MCSDS scores were negatively correlated with partner abuse perpetration and victimization rates. Social desirability was a significant predictor of psychological abuse perpetration, whereas gender was a significant predictor of sexual coercion perpetration. In all partner abuse cases, however, social desirability and gender accounted for less than 10% of the variance in partner abuse reports. [Source: SafetyLit, 11 June 2007].

Guidelines For Impact Or Outcome Evaluation For Projects Funded By The UNIFEM Trust Fund To Eliminate Violence Against Women, Rachel L., PREM, World Bank, 2006:  At a workshop held by the World Bank on the Development Implications of Gender-Based Violence in November of 2004, workshop participants, including UNIFEM representatives, identified the need to conduct systematic evaluations of the trust fund projects in order to determine their effectiveness in addressing gender-based violence.  The associated recommendation was to develop an evaluation guide that UNIFEM can use to conduct impact evaluations of its existing and future portfolios of projects.  The current document represents the first step in this endeavor: the drafting of a guide to impact evaluation based on a representative sample of fifteen projects, drawn randomly from the list of Trust Fund projects funded and completed to date.

Childhood sexual abuse, dissociation, and adult self-destructive behavior. Rodriguez-Srednicki O. J Child Sex Abuse; 10(3): 75-90. 2001:  Female college students reporting a history of childhood sexual abuse (N=175) and not reporting a history of childhood sexual abuse (N=260) were compared on indices of six self-destructive behaviors, including drug use, alcohol abuse, binge eating, self-mutilation, risky sex, and suicidality. The samples were also compared on two measures of dissociation, the Trauma Symptom Checklist dissociation subscale and the Dissociative Experiences Scale. The CSA group had significantly higher mean scores on all the indices of self-destructive behavior except self-mutilation (where the mean difference approached significance), and on both measures of dissociation. One or both dissociation measures were related significantly to each index of self-destructive behavior except binge eating. Multiple regression mediation analyses provided support for the hypothesis that dissociation mediates the relationships between CSA and both drug use and alcohol abuse. Dissociation also explained significant variability when added to the regressions of risky sex and suicidality on CSA. [Source: SafetyLit, 11 June 2007].

Internally Displaced Women - Gender Based Violence, IDMC:  Sexual and gender-based violence is one of the most pervasive violations of the rights of women and girls during armed conflict and displacement. It is often employed as a strategy of war by armed actors to gain power. Women and girls are at risk of sexual and gender-based violence in most internal displacement situations. This can include rape, forced impregnation, forced abortion, trafficking, and sexual slavery. While men and boys may also be affected, research indicates that sexual and gender-based violence predominantly affects women and girls.

III. WHO Mentor VIP Programme:

WHO Mentor VIP Programme:  MENTOR-VIP is designed to assist junior injury practitioners develop specific skills through structured collaboration with a more experienced person who has volunteered to act as a mentor. MENTOR-VIP provides a mechanism to match demand for technical guidance from some people with offers received from others to provide technical support.  The programme will operate in a pilot phase for 2007 and 2008, with a total of 15 mentor and mentee pairs being matched during each of those years. Mentors and mentees jointly define a 12-month work plan to help the mentee develop their skills. Application can be made online through the capacity building part of the WHO injury website at the link given below in this email. Candidatures are subsequently assessed by the programmes Core Group which matches the most appropriate applicants with the available mentors. The Core Group is a 9-member group coming from diverse backgrounds relevant to the injury area that provides overall guidance to the programme.  The mentoring arrangements within MENTOR-VIP are meant to be structured around low cost forms of interaction such as e-mail and telephonic communication, and MENTOR-VIP does not finance activities related to mentoring. If opportunities exist to enhance mentoring through meetings or other activities this may be pursued at the own cost of the mentor and mentee pair. However the mentoring arrangement should provide sufficiently regular and substantive contact through low cost means to provide high quality mentoring.  WHO expects that MENTOR-VIP will make an important contribution to capacity building for injury and violence prevention.  The deadline for applications to MENTOR-VIP is June 15. If you wish to apply to be mentored in the programme, please apply online through the WHO website BEFORE June 15. The website to apply to be awarded a mentorship is: http://www.who.int/violence_injury_prevention/capacitybuilding/mentor_vip/en <http://www.who.int/violence_injury_prevention/capacitybuilding/mentor_vip/en>

Sexual violence is a global issue that requires coordinated evidence-based responses.

The Sexual Violence Research Initiative, an initiative of the Global Forum for Health Research, is hosted by the Medical Research Council, South Africa.  The SVRI aims to promote research on sexual violence and generate empirical data to ensure sexual violence is recognized as a priority public health problem.
