This webinar provides a unique take on domestic violence prevention, identification, and intervention by enabling participants to develop a multi-disciplinary perspective of violence in the home. Results from my national domestic violence survey of victim serving agencies across multiple disciplines will be discussed. Both discipline-specific and shared barriers to working with victims of domestic violence will be addressed and recent findings from literature across several disciplines including: court systems, faith-based, law enforcement, education, social services, medical, animal welfare, child welfare, and domestic violence shelters will be highlighted. Participants will learn of critical concepts for addressing barriers, developing a truly multi-disciplinary response to domestic violence in their community, and promoting data-driven, effective and efficient community-inclusive methods to better identify and assist these victims of violence in the home as early as possible.
The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.
The National Law Enforcement Center on Animal Abuse was established by the National Sheriffs’ Association to provide law enforcement officers information on the realities of animal abuse and to promote their proactive involvement in the enforcement of animal abuse laws in their communities. Through our partners, the Center will serve as an information clearinghouse and forum for law enforcement on the growing problem of animal abuse and its link to other types of crimes, including violence against humans. The Center also promotes officer safety in officer-dog encounters through continuing education and training.
