10/11/2014 - Best Practices & Helpseeking Obstacles: Law Enforcement and Advocacy

When: 10/11/2014 to 10/11/2014, 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
WHAT: Web Conference / Webinar
WHERE:
INFORMATION: The faculty will discuss the findings of a national study of domestic violence witnessed by children. Among other findings, an exemplary level of police response (that which included at least 6 "best practices" for law enforcement - follow up after initial contact, safety planning with victim, assessment of child's needs, provision of 911 telephone, description of protection orders and court procedures, connection with available shelter and services, explanation of effects of domestic violence on children, and efforts to help victims feel safe) was most associated with arrest. Contact with advocates involving referrals and protection order information was most associated with separation from domestic violence perpetrators. Obstacles to accessing services were identified. Helpseeking was not deterred by obstacles in the directions anticipated by researchers. Criminal justice case attrition was high across the full spectrum of criminal legal interventions. Practitioner faculty will reflect on the research and analyze it in light of the "best practices" and obstacles to service in their respective fields.
