The Role of Community Based Advocates

Written by Amy Smith. Posted in Training - Descriptions and Information

This training will address advocacy strategies when community-based anti-domestic violence advocates work with domestic violence survivors who are charged with crimes.  We will discuss issues of confidentiality, the role of advocates as part of legal defense teams, collateral consequences of arrest and convictions on domestic violence survivors, and the complexity of safety planning when working with domestic violence victims who are also defendants in criminal cases.
