26Octallday27alldayCo-occurence of Domestic Violence and Child AbusePresented by First Witness

Event Details

For decades, the system responding to domestic violence has believed that once the battered woman leaves, the violence, power and control ends. But the batterer’s desire and ability to punish and control remains strong. There is a high co-occurrence between child abuse and domestic violence, complicating family reactions, needs and intervening effectively to protect both the children and the mother. We will talk about the 7 Realities for mothers and children after they leave and explore how advocates can change thinking and responses to better assist families facing both DV and child abuse.

Who should attend:

  • Advocates working within domestic violence agencies
  • Advocates working within sexual assault agencies
  • Directors or managers within domestic violence or sexual assault programs
  • Victim witness specialists
  • Any advocate working on behalf of survivors of physical and/or sexual violence and/or child abuse

This training has been conditionally approved for OVW grantees to attend.

Cost: $200 – $250
