She also serves as the Faculty Director of the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning at the University of Denver. A licensed clinical psychologist in Colorado, she teaches courses on violence against women, research methods, and clinical interventions. Drawing on multiple methodologies (e.g., cognitive tasks, clinical interviews, survey methodology), DePrince’s researchfocuses on the consequences of violence and abuse in both youth and adults with particular emphasis on intimate abuse.

Discussants: Attorney and Advocate, TBA.

Host: Barbara Hart, J.D. Muskie School of Public Service and Battered Women’s Justice Project.

The Webinar will explore women’s experiences following reports of intimate partner abuse (IPA) to law enforcement. Dr. DePrince’s research examines the impact of victim-focused, community coordinated response (CCR) on women’s well being, as well as criminal justice outcomes. Extending past research that has tended to focus primarily on characteristics of victims, this research used spatial analyses (i.e., a geographic information system) to consider relations between women’s social context and well-being following IPA. Thus, this Webinar will describe ways that spatial analyses can inform understanding of women’s experiences following IPA.
