Abstract

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a significant concern among recently returning Veterans. In this paper, we discuss the etiology of IPV in this population and the intersections between Veteran healthcare and criminal justice system policies regarding Veteran IPV. We describe the current socio-political context in which clinical interventions and criminal justice diversion policies and pilot programs are emerging. Challenges to coordinating prevention and intervention across Veteran healthcare and criminal justice systems are discussed and highlighted via material on a Veteran-specific IPV intervention, and we discuss strategies for overcoming coordination challenges as well as areas for further innovation.
