What Do We Think and Expect of Victims & Survivors? Exploring and Challenging Our Beliefs
Presented by Julia F. Weber, Supervising Attorney
Center for Families, Children & the Courts
Judicial and Court Operations Services Division, Judicial Council of California
In this interactive workshop, participants will consider how their expectations of clients might affect their interactions and will identify ways of reconsidering their perspectives so as to most effectively provide information and assistance. Discussion will focus on understanding personal and structural biases that can influence how we understand intimate partner violence along with gender, race, class, sexual orientation, and intersectionality. Small groups will focus on a problem-solving exercise leading to facilitated discussion that meets the learning objectives.
