Description: 

This webinar will address interpersonal violence victimization, including intimate partner violence and sexual assault in the context of military employment and how and why this is different for women in the military than for women in the civilian community. Did you know that some women enter and/or leave military service because they are coerced to do so by an abusive intimate partner? Were you aware that interpersonal violence victimization may affect military promotion or the ability to remain in the military? What is the role of the service member’s commander in responding to interpersonal violence victimization? This webinar provides an opportunity to hear about current research and from a former commander about his observations and experiences with responding to interpersonal violence in the context of military service. Learn more about the webinar.
