Belying their minimizing and braggadocio, perpetrators of intimate partner homicides unwittingly provide useful information about the interconnections between sex and violence within the context of an abusive relationship. Their expectations about sex, rushed courtships, jealousy and infidelity, provide retrospective insight into when and why sexual coercion unfolds over time, and how this contributes to homicide.  

Based on in-depth interviews of killers as well as victims of attempted homicide, the presenter will describe four phases of the relationship, beginning with first sex, onset of jealousy and infidelity, escalation of sexual coercion, and the weaponization of sex. The first part of this webinar will focus on cases of homicide and near-homicide, followed by a focus on sex as a coercive element in non-lethal relationships of abusers engaged in an abuser intervention program.  


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

  • Identify how sexual coercion and possessive jealousy serve as a risk factor for intimate partner homicide. 
  • Recognize how sex and sexual coercion evolve over the relationship histories of perpetrators of homicide and near-homicides. 
  • Recognize the importance of first and second date sex, and rescuing fantasies as predictors of abuse within the relationship and lethality.
