Representing Domestic Violence Survivors Who are Experiencing Trauma and Other Mental Health Challenges: A Handbook for Attorneys

General Material
Published Date
December, 2011

This handbook was created to provide guidance to attorneys so that they can help survivors achieve their civil legal objectives when trauma or other mental health challenges are a potential factor in a case. The handbook features strategies that aim to keep trauma and other mental health challenges from becoming the central focus or even a consideration in the survivor’s case, and guidance for limiting the impact when mental health evidence is introduced by the opposing party.
