The Family Violence Prevention Fund, National Resource Center on Domestic Violence and Greater Hartford Legal Aid have just released a new guide to improve outreach and responses to domestic violence victims who are in contact with their partners or children’s fathers. This new resource addresses how to identify safety strategies, find resources and to know what to say when a victim’s focus and goals are to remain in contact, remain in the relationship or to improve their children’s relationship with their father. It also recommends what kinds of new partnerships need to be developed to benefit these women and children, how to talk to women and children about what helps men change, and organizational opportunities and challenges to become more relevant in communities.
