2019 End Abuse of People with Disabilities Webinar Series
Date: December 17, 2019
Time: 2:00-3:30 pm ET
About this Webinar
People with disabilities are more likely to experience domestic and sexual violence and therefore more likely to need a protection order. To provide effective assistance in protection order cases, advocates and attorneys must identify and take into account any disability a client may have and the barriers that may arise. Practitioners need to foresee the barriers, recognize them, and eliminate them, to ensure an accessible protection order process for survivors with disabilities. In this webinar, CVS Senior Program Associate Jannette Brickman will review each stage of the protection order process and their associated access concerns as well as ways to overcome the barriers that may emerge.
