    Does the CDC have information in the longitudinal trends in DV? Is it a growing problem? Do the incidence rates seem to be stable or going up or down?

    It seems in the US we are putting too much emphasis on intervention with women. Men seem to be the predominant perpetrators of intimate partner violence. How can we begin engaging men in a more direct, large scale fashion to change men’s attitudes about women that lead to abusive behavior?

    What can colleges do besides raise awareness through educational programs?
