The Sexually Violent Batterer: Assessing Risk in Dual Perpetrators

Research shows that domestic violence perpetrators who also sexually abuse their intimate partner are an exceptional group, a “different breed” of abuser that is potentially far more dangerous than one who physically abuses alone. Learn about the characteristics, tactics, and motives of so-called “dual perpetrators” and discover how to assess their behavior with an eye toward femicide prevention. Participants will explore the issue of intimate partner sexual violence and recognize risk factors associated with perpetrator lethality. Sensitive, culturally competent victim screening practices will be covered, as well as the utility of actuarial assessment tools. This training is appropriate for law enforcement, advocates, health workers, and criminal justice professionals.
