Live Webinar: Beyond the Talking Points: Top Solutions for Florida’s Families - Part 2,
Friday, September 28, 2018, 11:00 a.m. (Eastern)


Florida’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems remain hot topics in the news. While Florida has made overall progress in keeping children safe and helping them turn their lives around, high profile cases of children falling through the cracks and systemic maltreatment shows additional reforms are as important as ever. What solutions could move Florida in a better direction? Our presenters for this webinar series, among our nation’s best and brightest, are noted thought leaders in the fields of child welfare and juvenile justice.

National Webinar: Bad to the Bone: Pet Abuse, Child Abuse, and Intimate Partner Violence,
Tuesday, October 2, 2018, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. (Eastern)


Based on recent publication in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence, which is the first in literature to utilize police officer observations and victims reports from the scene to quantify risk in homes where Intimate Partner Violence and Pet Abuse co-occur, this webinar will describe the specific emotional and physical risks of harm for all humans and animals residing in these homes. With nearly 80% of these victims fearing they will eventually be killed by the suspect, these families are likely to require immediate assistance to better ensure a safe and positive outcome. In addition to increased risk for victims, concerns for the safety of first responders at the scene of these incidents will also be addressed. Effective multi-disciplinary strategies for reducing risk and improving outcomes in homes where these forms of violence occur will be described.
