October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) and the VA Intimate Partner Violence Assistance Program (IPVAP) recognizes that Domestic Violence (DV) is a serious yet preventable public health problem that may disproportionately affect Veterans. In this learning opportunity, participants will learn about correlations between narcissist behaviors and IPV. Participants will also learn about women’s use of violence and the criminalization of survival.
