In Fall of 2014, nearly everyone in the NFL, including some family members, participated in broad-based domestic violence (DV), child abuse (CA), and sexual assault (SA) education. Mandatory for all league and club office personnel, owners, coaches, and players and available to and highly encouraged for friends, family members, and loved ones, the education sessions were conducted at all 32 clubs, all US based league offices and the NFL’s offices in Canada and the United Kingdom. In an effort to more broadly educate others outside the league about domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault, the NFL is making this presentation available to the public.
Sherry Hamby, PhD. Gender patterns in intimate partner violence (IPV) remain a controversial topic. Some self-report measures produce gender "parity" in rates of IPV. However, some surveys do not produce gender parity, nor do arrests, reports to law enforcement, homicide data, helpseeking data, or witness reports. This methodological inconsistency is still poorly understood. This webinar will describe efforts to create more valid and gender sensitive measures of IPV, beginning with the Revised Conflict Tactics Scale (CTS2), which did not shift gender patterns in comparison to the original CTS, and continuing to the new Partner Victimization Scale, which does not show gender parity. The Partner Victimization Scale is one of at least 3 alternatives that can be used when a self-report tool that has multi-method convergence with other IPV measures is desired.
