Advocacy and Male Survivors of Domestic Violence
Provided by: National LGBTQ Institute on IPV
 
Date: October 2, 2019
 
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

As domestic violence programs across the country grapple with how to meaningfully support survivors of all genders, there are important questions that inevitably emerge. What is different about male survivors of domestic violence from other survivors and what do we attribute that difference to? What is the impact of patriarchy and toxic masculinity on relationships? How do we maintain and strengthen a collective feminist analysis on gender, power, and violence as we grapple with these questions?
 
LGBTQ culturally specific programs have a long history of supporting bisexual men, transgender men, and gay men who have survived domestic violence. Join us on this webinar, as we explore the questions above, share our approach to meaningfully supporting male survivors by centering the experiences of bi+, trans, and gay men, and share tips and best practices in providing advocacy.

Working at the Intersections of DV, Substance Abuse, and Mental Health: Research, Resources, and Recommendations
Provided By: National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health
 
Date: October 17, 2019
 
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

Summary:

While it has long been recognized that domestic violence can have significant mental health and substance use-related effects, the lack of collaboration between systems often leave survivors and their families without ways to address both safety and recovery needs. In order to address these intersecting issues, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Administration for children and Families (ACF) have issues an Information Memorandum calling for increased collaboration between domestic violence, mental health and substance use disorder treatment service providers and systems. This webinar will introduce key issues highlighted in the Information Memorandum, along with recommendations, a media toolkit, and resources for supporting individuals and families experiencing domestic violence.


Who should attend:

This webinar is designed for State Mental Health and State Substance Use Disorder Treatment Directors and staff; State Family Violence Prevention and Services Administrators and staff; State, Territory and Tribal Domestic and Sexual Violence Coalitions; and for organizations and practitioners working in the  domestic and sexual violence, mental health, and substance use disorder treatment and recovery fields.

As a result of this training, participants will be better able to:
 
  • Facilitate access to justice by fostering more culturally responsive court staff.
  • Identify role-specific responsibilities in implementing culturally responsive practices in the courts.

  • Cultural Responsiveness & Systems Mapping
  • Collaborations with Communities

Attendance is limited to 40 participants representing Justice for Families, Improving Criminal Justice Response (ICJR), STOP and their OVW grant partners. Grantees may use their OVW travel funds to send court staff and partners to this training. The ideal team consists of 3 to 4 participants who work DV/SA cases such as judges, court clerks, security personnel, court advocates and DV prosecutors, and other court-related stakeholders such as domestic violence advocates or civil legal services attorneys. Please note that one of these participants needs to be a member of a community-based organization.
