Family Law Toolkit for Domestic Violence Advocates

We created these tools for domestic violence advocates to help survivors explore the risks and benefits of disclosing mental health concerns in legal proceedings, and to address the backlash against the use of protective behaviors.

These tools are available to Coalition members on our members page.

  • To Tell or Not To Tell? Deciding Whether to Disclose Mental Health Concerns in Protection Order and Family Law Cases:  An Advocate’s Guide to Helping Domestic Violence Survivors
  • When Protective Behaviors are Seen as Harmful

This project is supported by Grant No. 2014-FW-AX-K010 awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice.
