Think. Rethink. Mandatory Reporting Practices
Date: February 6, 2019
Time: 6:00 am – 7:30 am ChST

Results of a recent survey indicate mandated reporting impacts domestic violence survivors, and most often that impact is detrimental. 50% of survivors in the survey said the mandatory report made things "much worse." Youth under 18 and trans* and gender variant people were especially impacted - almost half said that they had avoided seeking support for fear that they would be reported. Youth and especially LGBTQ youth are not talking to trusted adults about their relationships because of fear of being reported. In this webinar, presenters will unpack the impact of mandatory reporting on help seeking and identify practical strategies advocates can use to decrease negative consequences of reporting and increase survivor safety and self-determination.
Breaking the Cycle: A Life Course Framework for Preventing Domestic Violence

What are the critical childhood and adolescent experiences that are associated with domestic violence perpetration later on? How are these experiences shaped by the cultural and social environment in which we live? How can a life course framework help break the cycle of intergenerational violence once and for all?
The root causes of domestic violence are many and complex-existing at the individual, family, community, and societal levels. Blue Shield of California Foundation is releasing a groundbreaking meta-analysis that identifies the timing and sequence of childhood and adolescent events and experiences that are strongly associated with perpetration of domestic violence as adults. This life course analysis identifies both key risk factors and opportunities to prevent violence from occurring in the first place.
Join Blue Shield for this webinar to learn more about the findings from the meta-analysis, including the critical periods in a young person's life and the specific risk factors that are associated with later perpetration. Hear from the Forward Change researcher, the Breaking the Cycle program officer and two leaders from the domestic violence field.
