This paper defines violence from a Public Health perspective.
It offers recommendations for creating a curriculum to teach health professionals about the critical issues involved in establishing a more peaceful society.
Specific learning objectives, teaching methods, and examples of group discussion activities are presented, as well as an extensive bibliography.
The intention is to make available to health professionals information that promotes an understanding of the overall impact of violence in our society, and specific skills in the recognition and management of victims of violence.
Because of the importance of domestic violence as the center of the web of violence in our culture, emphasis is placed on understanding the dynamics and effects of this specific form of violent behavior.
Teaching violence prevention occupies a critical role for medical education.
