This webinar will describe the desperate need to bridge critical gaps that currently exist in domestic violence research and literature. We’ll cover improving batterer intervention programs to better address mental health needs of this population, improving access to services for children residing in homes where domestic violence occurs, improving support for caregivers victimized by violence, improving understanding of emotional/psychological injury often present in these homes, and the need to extend domestic violence family services to include pets.
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.
