Research summary

Dr. Brownridge’s research focuses on the social epidemiology of family violence.

He has conducted research on various forms of family violence, including child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, dating violence, and elder abuse.

Indeed, Dr. Brownridge developed a new subfield on violence in vulnerable populations with ensuing substantive, theoretical, and methodological advancements (for an articulation of his overall approach to the study of violence in vulnerable populations, see Brownridge, D. A., 2009. Violence against women: Vulnerable populations. New York, NY: Routledge).
