Welcome to FCVRAT! The Family and Community Violence Research and Action Team (FCVRAT) focuses on community-engaged research that promotes the health and wellbeing of women and children who have experienced, or are at risk for experiencing, interpersonal, family, and community violence. Currently, we are investigating psychosocial outcomes of women and children who have been exposed to intimate partner violence and concomitant maltreatment of companion animals. We are dedicated to collaborative research partnerships with community-based organizations that promote participant empowerment and coordinated community and policy responses to addressing the pervasive global public health issues of violence against women and children.
