How Survivors of Domestic Violence Define Success: Connection not Separation

1.50 SW Hours, 1.50 LPC Hours, 1.50 LMFT Hours

@@@MoreBegin@@@

The Full Frame Initiative (FFI) set out to understand how people who have experienced domestic violence define success for themselves, and how others in the domestic violence field define success for survivors. Over two and a half years, FFI conducted 46 workshops with survivors and practitioners in mainstream, culturally specific and underserved communities, and 12 interviews with policy makers and funders, across California. For the more 150 survivors in this project, success is about connection to family and friends, belonging to something bigger than oneself, and creating value for self and others. Domestic violence is not central to their identity, and success is not achieved through traditionally conceived pathways to safety, such as separation. These findings hold true across all geographic and both culturally specific and mainstream communities. FFI will present the details and findings of this groundbreaking project, and share recomme ndations for concrete action steps to improve systems and services for people who have experienced violence in their relationships.

The Intersection of Civilian and Military Justice

In addition to the legal complexities of family violence offenses, justice requires that prosecutors possess a keen understanding of the underlying dynamics of family violence in order to conduct a responsible prosecution. Without it, prosecutors can unwittingly increase the danger of the situation and exacerbate the already precarious position of victims and their families. In the context of family violence cases, conviction does not necessarily equal success.
