Homicide is the most extreme consequence of intimate partner violence and yet research gives us little insight into the characteristics of these crimes for the Latino population. This webinar will present the current research that is available and preview results from a research project on Latino intimate partner homicide using data from the National Violent Death Reporting System maintained by the CDC. There are aspects of intimate partner homicide that are unique to Latinos namely: the gender ratio, number of wounds, location of deaths, and the number of suicide-homicides. The findings call attention to the racial and gender differences in IPH and reaffirm the need to continue to focus efforts toward prevention and intervention in these cases before fatality occurs.
By the end of this webinar, participants will:
- Understand current research on Latino intimate partner homicide.
- Learn about the utility and possible uses of the National Violent Death Reporting System.
- Recognize the unique aspects of intimate partner homicide specific to Latinos.
