Abstract

Domestic violence is a difficult issue to investigate and a complicated one to report. Following more than eight years of reviewing domestic abuse deaths in Iowa, the members of the Iowa Domestic Abuse Death Review Team decided to produce a guide to assist journalists in accurately covering domestic violence homicides and other related stories. As those who work in the field of mass communication know, language is critical to shaping a story – and the team members believe that the media can play an important role in not only reporting these crimes, but in educating the public about domestic violence.
