International studies indicate that IPV is a significant concern among current and ex-serving military personnel, and these studies highlight the need for initiatives to address violence used by current or former personnel, as well as IPV victimisation (or exposures) encountered in military and veteran-specific contexts. However, there has been limited empirical attention to IPV among these current and former personnel outside the U.S.

Register for this event

In this seminar Dr Sean Cowlishaw will describe an emerging program of collaborative research that is oriented towards improving recognition and responses to these issues in an Australian context. He will provide critical background and an overview of existing studies of prevalence and predominant approaches to addressing IPV in military and veteran-specific health services, and describe ongoing work being conducted in partnership with major military and veteran-specific support services and agencies in Australia.

Dr Sean Cowlishaw is a Senior Research Fellow with the Phoenix Australia Centre for Posttraumatic Mental Health, in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Melbourne.

MAEVe is an interdisciplinary research alliance based at The University of Melbourne with the broad aim of ending violence against women and their children.
