This section compiles resources for program administrators and practitioners who have, or need to, implement a domestic violence component to their programs. Information regarding inter-agency domestic violence protocols and lessons learned in these partnerships is given. In addition, screening and assessment in the identification and response to DV is discussed.
Certain populations, like children, teens, men and various cultures, experience, or are exposed to, domestic violence at varying rates. In an effort to respond to the diverse experiences of victims and survivors of domestic violence, services must be individualized to meet the unique needs of each population and/or community.
