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?
