Tulsa's rate of women murdered by men far outpaces national figure
By Dylan Goforth
Tulsa World

 

Ashley Brizendine was 21 and pregnant the first time her boyfriend was jailed on allegations that he abused her.

Her boyfriend, Brian Xavier Harris, was arrested after she told police that he grabbed her by the throat and poured red Kool-Aid down her throat. Harris finally stopped, she told police, and told her to “go take a shower.” While she was showering, Harris hit her in the head, leaving a bruise, and cut her with a knife, leaving a visible 2-inch laceration, she said.

Part II Solutions: Integrating Health Assessments into Domestic Violence Programs

Webinar Recording Webinar PowerPoint

Hosted by the National Family Justice Center Alliance, featuring Futures Without Violence and two DV organizations (2014). This webinar lays out multiple approaches to integrating health services, with case examples form The Haven Shelter and Services (VA) and HAVEN (OR) programs.

Good health is an important step to healing from domestic violence, and advocates are in a unique position to intervene and reduce health consequences related to experiencing abuse.  Integrating health services into domestic violence programs provides an important resource for clients to access resources and information, as well as an opportunity to create a culture of wellness and develop a more comprehensive array of services for their clients and staff.  There are many models for integrating health services into domestic violence programs ranging from adding basic health assessments into shelter intakes, to creating full-scale onsite clinics and partnering with local health departments to station DV advocates in public health clinics.

Part I The Problem:  Addressing the Health Needs of Intimate Partner Violence Survivors in FJCs

Webinar Recording Webinar PowerPoint

 screenshot Part 1 Addressing the Health Needs  

Created by the National Family Justice Center Alliance and Ralph Rivielo in January of 2014 is webinar addressing the health needs of intimate partner violence surivors in Family Justice Centers. 

Beyond the devastating impacts domestic violence (DV) has on victims, their families, and our communities, are the lingering effects on health. Victims of DV go to the Emergency Room more often than non-victims, are 3 times more likely to have reproductive health issues, and are more likely to experience depression (including postpartum depression), and have a chronic illness. Despite these needs, women are not receiving the full care they need whether they walk into a hospital or DV service organization. In this webinar miniseries, the Alliance and its distinguished partners present domestic violence as a health issue, review current trends in healthcare approaches to DV, and provide recommendations to Family Justice Centers, multi-service organizations, and multidisciplinary professionals about how to integrate health services into their scope of care and advocacy.

When Systems Intersect: Implications for Battered Mothers

Webinar Recording Webinar PowerPoint

 alt  

Criminal Court, Custody Court and Child Protection look at domestic violence differently and practitioners in each have particular messages they give to victims.  The vastly differing "culture" of these systems led UK researcher Marianne Hester to call them "Three Planets".  On the Criminal Court system, domestic violence is a crime and the central issue.  But the same domestic assault victim is treated differently on the Child Protection and the Custody Court systems.  Criminal cases might arise long before battered mothers consider separation but decisions these victims make can have significant consequences for custody months or years later.  This webinar will explore some of the different cultures in each system and focus on the current beliefs guiding decision making in Custody Court. Awareness and anticipation of these beliefs can help prepare battered mothers for what they might find on the system that determines custody.

Addressing Long-Term Health Consequences of Strangulation

Webinar - Addressing Long-Term Health Consequences of Strangulation

There is now mounting evidence in the medical literature that intimate partner violence, including strangulation, has long-term negative health consequences for survivors. This impact, what Dr. Ellen Taliaferro terms the Pandora Effect, lingers long after the bruises fade, the bones mend, and the abuse is over. Still, many victims, their friends and relatives, and those who serve them in the domestic violence advocacy, medical and law enforcement communities fail to understand how significantly this lingering footprint of violence is affecting their well-being and ability to carry on a normal life.

During this webinar, Dr. Taliaferro discussed recent research and commonly diagnosed symptoms and health consequences of strangulation survivors, including behavioral changes and brain injuries. This webinar provides the necessary understanding and knowledge to assist victims in their journey to long-term recovery.

Mass Shooting Analysis Finds Strong Domestic Violence Connection
By Melissa Jeltsen
Huffington Post

 

A recent analysis of U.S. gun deaths has found that a majority of mass shootings were related to domestic or family violence.

In that span of five and a half years, the group identified 110 mass shootings, which were defined as shootings in which at least four people were murdered with a firearm. Of those shootings, at least 57 percent were related to domestic or family violence.
