As the overall statistics for Intimate Partner Violence in the United States has declined over the past 15 years, statistics for Intimate Partner Violence involving people associated with the military are on the rise. According to the San Francisco Times (2014), “Research has found that veterans diagnosed with PTSD were "significantly more likely to perpetrate violence toward their partners," with over 80 percent committing at least one act of violence in the previous year, and almost half at least one severe act, including strangulation, stabbing and shooting. This is more than 14 times higher than the general civilian population.” This presentation is designed to inform the participant on the links between Intimate Partner Violence and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
