"Why don't they just leave?" This question is asked by many people who are good-intentioned and concerned about the safety of domestic violence victims. However, there are many reasons why victims don't "just leave." In this presentation, attendees will be provided with an overview of basic definitions, concepts, and statistics related to domestic violence (aka intimate partner violence) in the United States. The presentation will address how power, control, and manipulation are integral parts of intimate partner violence. Attendees will also learn how structural barriers make it difficult for victims to flee. This presentation will be helpful as an introductory course for new law enforcement professionals, or as a refresher for experienced professionals who want to revisit the basics.
