Title of Presentation:
Domestic Violence and RSAT
Although substance abuse is the universal common denominator among RSAT inmates, many share another common challenge, domestic violence (DV). Among RSAT populations are a high proportion of both domestic violence victims and perpetrators. In fact, some RSAT inmates’ substance abuse may have been the result of self-medication to deal with the stress of domestic violence. It also plays a major role in post-release recidivism. Studies indicate that after release, the second largest number of rearrests for RSAT graduates after substance abuse crimes is domestic violence.
After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe five activities that constitute what is typically described as “domestic violence.”
- Identify the major three risk factors associated with being both a high risk abuser and being most vulnerable for domestic violence victimization.
- Identify criminal and civil court histories that indicate domestic violence abuse and domestic violence abuse victimization.
- Identify a community resource available to augment RSAT treatment to address domestic violence for both perpetrators and victims.
