This paper summarizes the available evidence in three key areas related to recognizing and addressing intimate partner violence/teen dating violence in healthy relationship programs: 1) Building organizational readiness to recognize and address intimate partner violence/teen dating violence; 2) Offering survivor-centered and trauma-informed opportunities for participants to disclose intimate partner violence/teen dating violence; and 3) Protecting survivor safety whenever intimate partner violence/teen dating violence is disclosed. It reviews empirical, theoretical, and practice-based literature and is informed by a panel of research experts, domestic violence advocates, and service providers. This is the fourth in a series of papers from the RIViR project, which aims to understand how to best identify and address IPV in the context of healthy relationship programming. (Author abstract)
