Approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States. Access to legal services has been identified as one of the most effective tools for victims to become safe; however, survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking are frequently unable to access the remedies provided to them by the justice system.

Presented by the American Bar Association Commission on Domestic Violence, this video DVD-ROM will provide fundamental guidelines for practicing attorneys that will enable them to more effectively, ethically, and holistically represent victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Through a variety of learning opportunities including small group activities, demonstrations, role plays and facilitated discussion, participants will be able to: (1) recognize and screen for intimate partner violence and power and control tactics; (2) identify the legal needs and privacy and confidentiality issues of their clients; (3) develop safety plans for clients and work collaboratively with community resources to ensure safety; and (4) identify short and long term goals for their clients.

This project was supported by Grant No. 2004-WT-AX-K078 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice. The opinions, findings, conclusions, and recommendations expressed in this publication/program/exhibition are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women.
