Event description

Description

Every year 3-4 million women in the U.S. are abused and 1,500-1,600 are killed by their abusers. The challenge for those who encounter abused women is to identify those with the highest level of danger. For 25 years, the Danger Assessment tool has been used by law enforcement, healthcare professionals, and domestic violence advocates as an instrument to help determine the level of danger an abused woman has of being killed by her intimate partner.

A shorter lethality screen, the Lethality Assessment Program for First Responders, was adapted from the Danger Assessment as a tool for use by law enforcement officers responding to domestic violence calls. The Santa Clara County Domestic Violence Protocol for Law Enforcement requires all jurisdictions to screen victims for lethality and immediately connect those in high danger to one of the domestic violence hotlines.

On December 1, Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell will provide the data behind her research, the development of the evidence-based tool, and its importance to anyone interacting with abused women. Dr. Campbell will also explain the weighted scoring of the tool, which is vital to accurately determining the level of danger, and instructions on how to interpret the results.

Anticipated Audience: Domestic violence advocates, law enforcement, healthcare professionals, and other key stakeholders who work directly with victims of domestic violence.
