Thursday, February 20, 2014, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CST

Safety planning necessitates an on-going dialogue with victims to thoroughly assess the possible adverse impact of various legal and service options. Legal reliefs and services that are commonly sought in most cases may be present barriers to safety for some victims of domestic or sexual violence. The presenter will discuss strategies for developing effective partnerships with victims to promote safety throughout the legal system and beyond.

Presenter: Jennifer Arsenian, J.D., faculty for judicial trainings through the National Judicial Institute on Domestic Violence
