This seminar provides the first set of estimates from a national large-scale survey of violence against women and men who identified themselves as American Indian or Alaska Native using detailed behaviorally specific questions on psychological aggression, coercive control and entrapment, physical violence, stalking, and sexual violence. These results are expected to raise awareness and understanding of violence experienced by American Indian and Alaska Native people.

Dr. Rosay discusses the findings presented within his recently released report, Violence Against American Indian and Alaska Native Women and Men: 2010 Findings from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey. Following Dr. Rosay's presentation, Bea Hanson of the Office on Violence Against Women, Joye Frost of the Office for Victims of Crime, and Carrie Bettinger-Lopez of the White House discuss the policy and practice implications of the study; and highlight the need for additional services that are needed for American Indian and Alaska Native victims of crime.
