The June 2000 forum served as an opportunity for scholars and practitioners to mobilize around two issues that have a significant association with one another-substance abuse and domestic violence. The forum examined the nexus between these two issues as it impacts African Americans. Presenters emphasized the importance of advancing collaborations that foster prevention programs and research to enhance awareness of substance abuse and domestic violence, while also recognizing that there are divergent opinions concerning the nature of these problems and how they can be remedied. Forum segments included presentations from researchers and practitioners, as well as a variety of workshop sessions.
