I read this article in the New York Times about domestic violence among members of the military who have been away in Iraq. I wonder if there is research about rates of DV among people who perform other violent jobs – like police officers. This article seems to link DV to people with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) which you can get form being in a war, but it seems to me that the normalization of violence in general would play a role. What about DV rates of people who live in neighborhoods with high per capita murder rates (yes, Jeremey, correlation and causation — it is a problem), I am just saying.
It’s a hard article to read. Or it was for me anyway. Put some serious stuff to think about. Gabrielle — what say you?
