Information:
This webinar will explore the emerging research that suggests that the experience and use of violence varies for males and females and that a gender-informed approach is warranted. A look at personal factors as well as the role of context, culture, and victimization among females charged with intimate partner abuse and other violent crimes will be examined. This information will then be translated into recommendations for assessment and intervention.

Participants will learn about:
•Risk and other factors linked to female-involved violence
•The importance of context in understanding the use of violence among women
•Screening and assessment tools that have been validated with women
•Promising gender-responsive interventions and services

This webinar has limited seating but will be recorded and posted to the National Resource Center on Justice Involved Women Web site.
