Working Together to Address Domestic Violence Among Veterans

Description

Casey T. Taft, PhD, reviews how to help Veterans and their intimate partners at risk for domestic violence. This interactive article addresses how to recognize risk factors for domestic violence, including PTSD, and presents ways to assess for, prevent, and address intimate partner violence in Veterans and their families.

A program review of Strength at Home for military families struggling with post-deployment conflict, anger, and readjustment issues is included.

This 2013 Psychlopedia activity was e-published by The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, in October, 2013, as a review of part of the Summit: "Working Together to Restore Mental Well-Being and Address Domestic Violence Among Veterans: A Call To Action."
