1. Article by Jill Messing This article describes how to use risk assessment with immigrant and refugee survivors of intimate partner violence. We interviewed domestic violence practitioners to learn about best practices, and analyzed those interviews to develop a framework for implementing risk assessment with these vulnerable groups. We provide practical advice for connecting with clients around their risk factors to facilitate safety planning.

2. Article by Ijeoma Ogbonnaya This article systematically evaluates the literature on intimate partner violence (IPV) interventions for young people involved with the child welfare and legal systems. We searched six electronic databases for quantitative and qualitative peer-reviewed articles that focused on IPV victimization and/or perpetration; included child welfare and/or legal system-involved young people aged 10 to 24 years; delivered an intervention; and reported outcome(s). Data were extracted and findings were narratively summarized and compared. We provide child welfare and legal system-related practice, policy, and research recommendations based on our findings..
