Family Violence Prevention and Intervention in the Military: U.S. Army Family Advocacy Command Support Study: Lessons Learned
Brian Leidy and Marney Thomas, BCTR

Thursday, November 10, 2016
12:00-1:00 PM
Beebe Hall, 2nd floor conference room

Over a 15 year period (2001–2016) the Military Projects staff have been studying the impact of command leadership on recidivism in family violence (child and partner maltreatment) in the U.S. Army’s Family Advocacy Program (FAP). The three sequential studies that were conducted,  using installation records and Army Central Register data, provided a unique opportunity to understand and analyze  how intervention is implemented in the Army and examine what contextual, organizational, family, and individual characteristics mediate recidivism in cases of both partner maltreatment and child maltreatment. Leidy and Thomas will share lessons learned in their joint presentation.

Brian D. Leidy, Ph.D., is a senior extension associate in the BCTR.  He is the director of the Military Projects, assisting military family support programs in the Army, Army Reserve, and Department of Defense with needs assessment, program evaluation, and research studies of programs and services offered to service members and their families.

Marney Thomas, Ph.D., is a senior extension associate and the former director of the Military Projects (1991-2009).
