Civil vs. Criminal: Legal Remedies for Survivors of Domestic Violence

This course teaches basic knowledge and skills for working with domestic violence victims in both the civil and criminal systems in Washington, DC. It also teaches how to use this knowledge to support survivor-centric safety plans through intervention and advocacy.

Safety Planning & Lethality Assessments

Research conducted by Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell at Johns Hopkins University indicates that while every domestic violence case is different, some situations are more dangerous than others based on identifiable factors. This course is designed to introduce the background, history, and research behind the Lethality Assessment, as well as review DC SAFE’s specific Lethality Assessment Project. Participants will practice creating a safety plan with a client using the Lethality Assessment tool.
