Description

Could you sit in the same room as someone accused of murder? Determine competency of a 10-year-old child? Take a thorough history of sexually explicit crimes? This is Dr. Brenna Tindall’s life.

In this two part interview, Dr. Brenna Tindall talks with Dr. Jeremy Sharp about assessing and treating intimate partner violence and sexual violence. This interview dives deep into how these concepts overlap and examines the relatively small amount of research in this area. For those of you in the forensic arena, and anyone else interested in violent behavior within relationships, this is a must-listen. Here are just a few topics covered in the interview…

  • How to assess intimate partner violence and sexual violence
  • Why it’s important to separate the two
  • Statistics on incidence and co-occurrence of intimate partner violence and sexual violence
  • Recommendations for offenders/perpetrators of intimate partner violence and sexual violence
