Congratulations to Jamie Rowen who has been named a Center for Research on Families Scholar for 2017-18. CRF selected six scholars from among the colleges of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Natural Sciences and Nursing and the School of Public Health and Health Sciences.
Jamie's research study, paraphrasing the announcement, is titled “Thank You for Your Service: Veterans in the Criminal Justice System” and is meant "to shed light on the relationship between families, the military and the criminal justice system. Her study has important implications for efforts to redress and prevent violence within families by showing how courts balance the rights of offenders and victims of family violence, as well as how these new courts conceptualize the relationship between war, trauma and family violence."
