Contributions of Military Training to Men?s Attitudes toward Intimate Partner ViolenceTeresa Hendrix, Doctoral Candidate Problem Statement:  Intimate partner violence has been identified as a public health problem of epidemic proportions, responsible for 30% of female homicides in the US.  As a major health problem there are multiple negative health consequences for women.  Spouse abuse has been recognized as a serious problem in the military. A review of literature reveals that there is anecdotal evidence, but little empirical research on effects of military training and military culture related to intimate partner violence.  Conceptual Framework:  An ecological framework for Intimate Partner Violence conceptualizes violence as a multifaceted phenomenon grounded in interplay of factors on different social levels.  Violence against women results from the interaction of the factors.  This model emphasizes the interaction of factors at each level in the etiology of abuse. Subjects:  Volunteers at US army basic training will be compared to those in the process of enlisting but who have not arrived at basic training and to a control group not interested in serving in the military. Methodology:  This quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest, control group study with each group completing an instrument packet measuring the variables attitudes to partner violence, hypermasculinity, group cohesion.  A saliva sample for testosterone analysis will be collected.  The pretest and posttest will be 10 weeks apart. Results & Implications:  Anticipated implications include gaining knowledge to allow for creation an employment of preventive and interventional strategies to decrease incidents of partner violence in military communities. Method of Analysis:  Correlations will be used to explore relationships between variables, repeated measures MANOVA will be used to compare group mean scores, and multiple regression will be used to determine what variables are most predictive of altitudes toward partner violence in each of the three groups.
