On October 14th Andrew Campbell will discuss his cross-disciplinary approach to family violence in the second of our 3-part series on COVID-19. (See below).
There is already a known correlation between domestic violence and child abuse, as this NIMH study documents. Campbell adds animal abuse to his analysis, which generates some interesting and actionable insights.
For example, he overlays maps of animal control hotspots with domestic violence calls to show that surges in animal abuse are followed by surges in domestic abuse after a predictable time lag. He concludes that animal control agents are uniquely positioned to detect domestic and child abuse much earlier, and calls for professionals in child welfare, domestic violence, and animal control to work more closely together.
