Four Approaches to Understanding IPV

In this video from the 2011 Dart Center workshop "Out of the Shadows: Reporting on Intimate Partner Violence," four experts frame intimate partner violence socially, historically, culturally and from a public health perspective.

Jimmie Briggs, journalist, author and founder of the Man Up Campaign, discusses his work and career; Ann Jones, the author of “Women Who Kill,” talks about the history of the issue now known as "intimate partner violence"; Emily Rothman, associate professor of public health at Boston University, introduces a public health journalism; and Esta Soler, president of Futures Without Violence, talks about media coverage and activism. Bruce Shapiro, executive director of the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, introduces and moderates a discussion.

This video is from a two-day workshop held at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in October, 2011, made possible by generous funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: "Out of the Shadows: Reporting on Intimate Partner Violence."
