The Prosecuting Sexual Violence (PSV) Course in underway!

This five-day course consists of formal classroom training. The course is taught by both TCAP personnel as well as subject matter experts from the civilian community. The purpose of PSV is to train trial counsel to analyze and successfully prepare to prosecute the military’s sexual assault cases, including alcohol-facilitated sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and same-sex assault. Using a sexual assault-based fact pattern, TCAP and other non-DoD experts present instruction on topics including, but not limited to: Offender-Focused Prosecution; Victim-Centered Response; Understanding Victim Behavior and Reactions to Sexual Violence; and Interviewing Victims.
