Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world is facing its most challenging public health crisis. In honor of National Public Health Week, which is celebrated April 6–12, 2020, the GPO online bookstore offers the following resources for families to address the potential of violence within households and communities.

In Preventing Intimate Partner Violence Across the Lifespan the Center for Disease Control (CDC) brings to light selected strategies based on the best available evidence to help communities, states, and family units hone in on prevention activities having the greatest potential to prevent intimate partner violence (IPV). Important strategies covered in the book focus on providing safe and healthy relationship skills; engaging influential adults and peers; disrupting the developmental pathways toward IPV; creating protective environments; and strengthening economic support for families.

Understanding Domestic Violence provides help to better understand how domestic violence affects adult and child victims and offers tools to help prevent further injury or death. It also explains how the civil and criminal justice system can work for the protection of the victims.

The COVID-19 pandemic makes these resources valuable tools for all families and communities.
