  3. Polyvictimization


Polyvictimization is when one individual experiences multiple forms of abuse. In this innovation stream we look at the intersections between child abuse and neglect and other forms of violence including domestic violence and human trafficking. The focus is on how we, as a field, can better respond to the unique needs of individuals facing multiple forms of violence.
