The DVIR Collaborative, the Office of Women's Policy, and the Billy de Frank Center are excited to invite you to this August 12, 2013 Workshop, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at the Billy de Frank Center. 

This workshop is intended for professionals, advocates, attorneys, social workers, probation officers, counselors, medical care providers, and other service providers who work with clients who have experienced intimate partner or domestic violence in their LGBT relationships. A panel of experts from the Court and other agencies will participate in a Question and Answer Session. Topics that will be discussed are law enforcement response, how to obtain a restraining order, immigration concerns, safety planning, recognizing DV, and other issues. The Q&A will be preceded by a presentation regarding unique domestic violence issues in LGBT relationships and the most respectful lexicon to use when working with your LGBTQ clients. The Q&A will be followed by a resource fair with 30 to 40 services represented. You can network and obtain brochures and referral information for your clients.
