CLE: 1.25 Credits
The presenter will address the instances of domestic violence in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, and Queer communities. She will discuss the unique issues which can arise when assisting victims of domestic violence in same-sex relationships. Topics which will be discussed include: overcoming stereotypes and combating the corresponding treatment by members of the criminal justice system and other related agencies (i.e., adult protective services, prosecutors’ offices, police agencies), based on these stereotypes; fear of public humiliation—exposure of sexual orientation as well as exposure of occurrence of the abuse; fear of loss of family, children and job; children within the relationship; availability of specialized support groups; increased incidence of mutual arrests based on the perception that same sex assaults are equivalent to mutual combat; and educating your jurors to overcome jury nullification and bias. The presenter will also discuss the dynamics of sexual assault within this community. She will overview helpful resources available to utilize when providing services to these individuals and promising practices which you can implement in your jurisdictions.
