The Honorable Jeffrey Kremers, Chief Judge, First Judicial Administrative District, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, asked the very profound question, “If a partner is controlling, abusive and violent in the kitchen, the living room, and in public, why would he stop the abuse at the bedroom door?” 

This workshop will explore the prevalence of sexual violence/assault, rape, and domestic violence within the context of Intimate Partner Violence. Often, this type of polyvictimization is overlooked by not only service providers, but by victims themselves. It is important that victim advocates acknowledge and provide services to address this layered victimization. Further, not addressing the trauma caused by sexual violence can pose significant emotional and psychological problems for victims at other stages in their lives.

This webinar will shed light on the prevalence of sexual violence within intimate partner relationships, acknowledge the importance of developing collaborative strategies between domestic violence and sexual assault agencies, and advocate for a broader inclusion of addressing sexual violence within all systems working to address Intimate Personal Violence. 


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize the prevalence of sexual violence and abuse within domestic and intimate partner relationships.
  • Develop approaches to aid victims in their recognition and recovery from sexual victimization within an intimate partner relationship.
  • Create strategies that will enable domestic violence and sexual assault agencies to establish ways to effectively collaborate in the best interest of the victim.
