Intimate Partner Violence: Risk, Danger, Military Personnel, and Veterans @ BWJP Webinar
Oct 10 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

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?

Risk Assessment Skills for Advocates @ BWJP Webinar
Oct 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Advocates understand the importance of risk assessment though some many struggle with how to conduct assessments in a trauma informed way. A four-stage process for conducting risk assessments with victims will be presented. This framework provides a method for assessment that balances information gathering and relationship building with consideration for the victim’s history of violence. Advocates will learn concrete strategies for responding to victims at high risk of a lethal or near lethal assault.
