Christina Policastro has worked primarily in the area of victimology in which she has primarily published/presented on the topic of family violence, specifically intimate partner violence (IPV) and elder abuse. As of today, the issues that concern her the most include the overlap of different forms of victimization, namely child abuse, IPV, and elder abuse, as well as formal and informal responses to victims of crime. In Policastro’s words, “if I was to isolate what I thought was the single most pressing criminal justice issue facing the region and universities across the nation, I would say it was how to best serve crime victims, especially victims of sexual and intimate partner violence, while also attempting to prevent and reduce these forms of victimization.”
