Intimate Partner Violence: Risk, Danger, Military Personnel, and Veterans / 10 October 2013

Presented By: The Battered Women's Justice Project

Date: Thursday, October 10, 2013
Time: 2:00 - 3:30pm (Central Time)
Location: Your Desk

The Battered Women's Justice Project (BWJP) is pleased to announce a webinar on the current use of risk assessment tools in the criminal justice and advocacy response to intimate partner violence (IPV) cases. There will also be a specific discussion about IPV cases involving military personnel and veteran perpetrators. How often do you hear people say there is a higher rate of IPV and a higher incidence of lethal IPV among the military and veteran populations? Is this true? Are military and veteran-related cases of IPV more dangerous? Is there a relationship between military and/or combat experience and the level of risk and danger? Are there different risk factors for lethality and re-offense when a perpetrator has served in the military and had combat experience? Do advocates and other providers need to use different models and risk and danger assessment tools/instruments when working with the military and veteran populations? 

Presenter: Connie Sponsler-Garcia, Training and Technical Assistance Manager, BWJP

Discussants: April Gerlock, Ph.D., ARNP, PMHNP-BC, PMHCNS-BC, Board Certified Adult Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Associate Professor, University of Washington, School of Nursing, Gerlock Consulting;
Glenna Tinney, Military Advocacy Program Coordinator, BWJP.

Moderator: Glenna Tinney, Military Advocacy Program Coordinator, BWJP.

Description: This webinar will provide an overview of current thinking on risk and danger assessment for IPV. This information will then be applied to the military and veteran populations by subject matter experts for each of those areas. Whether you work in DoD or in a community-based program, this webinar will enhance your knowledge about IPV risk and danger assessment and how it applies to the military-related population.
