Trauma can have a lasting effect on a person's mental, emotional, and even physical states. When a person has an intellectual or developmental disability, the impact of trauma can be even more pronounced and unique methods for addressing the trauma are necessary. This webinar will explore the complicated manifestation of trauma in individuals with I/DD who have experienced domestic and/or sexual violence, as well as techniques for supporting survivors with intellectual and developmental disabilities experiencing trauma to facilitate the healing process.
 
 
 
Perceiving Credibility: Judicial Decision-Making in Domestic Violence Protective Order Cases

Date: Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Time: 6:00 am – 7:00 am ChsT

Provided by: Battered Women's Justice Project

Content: Many women who experience intimate partner violence (IPV) seek domestic violence protective orders (DVPOs) for secondary IPV prevention. Because judges have considerable autonomy making DVPO case decisions, there is a need to describe how courtroom interactions and information available to judges may influence DVPO dispositions. This webinar will discuss a qualitative research study that involved collecting and analyzing data from DVPO hearing observations and phone interviews with District Court Judges. The presentation will describe qualitative themes that may influence judges’ decision-making in DVPO hearings: case information availability, judge engagement level, and litigant credibility. Specific recommendations to enhance court processes and improve the experience of plaintiffs seeking DVPOs will be discussed.
