Serving Both Sides: Navigating Domestic Violence Amongst Service Users

Event Date
Tuesday, September 18, 2018, 02:00PM

Many disability providers have an explicit commitment to serve all people with a disability in their community, no matter what.  At the same time, they are increasingly aware of the likelihood of domestic violence within their communities, the complexities of domestic violence, and the unique dynamics that domestic violence creates, particularly when both parties are users of their organization's services. On any given day, a disability service provider could be serving both parties in a domestic violence situation. Because of this, disability providers may be grappling with how to uphold their commitment to serve all while also ensuring that victims feel safe receiving services from their organization. This webinar will begin to explore the importance of policies to ensure effective and safe services for all people served as well as some important considerations when developing such a policy at your organization.
