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?

Dating violence in adolescence not only takes a physical and emotional toll on young women, it also leads to less education and lower earnings later in life. A young woman’s educational performance may be hindered by her partner’s actions, such as destroying books or homework or causing injuries that prevent her from going to school.
Researchers analyzed survey data of about 500 single mothers who were, on average, 32 years old and earned less than $7,000 per year. Participants who had been victimized by dating partners as adolescents obtained significantly less education. Each additional year of education was associated with an extra $855 in earnings.
