First Exercise – Five Questions 1. Have you ever been in an intimate relationship with someone you trusted — a friend, family member, partner, spouse — and that person betrayed you? 2. Did you forgive that person? 3. Have you ever stayed in a relationship for a longer period of time than in hindsight you realized was good for you? 4. Imagine someone with a well-known history of violence is holding you hostage. You have a small window of opportunity to escape. However, your abductor has informed you that if you try to escape, there is a 99% chance you will be caught and severely punished, if not killed, for making this attempt. If you do manage to escape, there is a 75% chance you will be stalked, hunted down, recaptured and killed because you did escape. Are you going to try to escape, knowing it will likely lead to serious injury if not death? 5. Now imagine a woman you love in the same situation — a friend, mother, sister, cousin —she manages to call you and asks you if she should try to escape. Are you going to tell her to try to escape?

Intentional impairment of physical condition. A violation of s. 940.255 (1), (2), or (3). A physical act that may cause the other person reasonably to fear imminent engagement in the conduct described under 1, 2 or 3.

What is Domestic Abuse? Suggested Definition: Domestic abuse is a pattern of coercive tactics that are used to gain and maintain power and control in an ongoing, familiar relationship. Broader than Statute – Why?

Domestic Abuse is NOT… Mutual Abuse Committed by individuals with brain injuries or dementia Violence without the power and control dynamics or pattern A loss of control

Response to DV What is the most common question/response people have when people talk about a person experiencing domestic abuse?

The Abusive Mentality Controlling Feels entitled Twist things into their opposites Disrespects partner and feels superior Confuses love and abuse Adapted from Lundy Bancroft, Why Does He Do That?

The Abusive Mentality – Part 2 Manipulative Strives to have a good public image Feels justified Denies and minimizes behavior Is possessive Adapted from Lundy Bancroft, Why Does He Do That?

ENTITLEMENT Ownership Control Fear

“An abuser’s behavior is primarily conscious – he acts deliberately rather than by accident or by losing control of himself – but the underlying thinking that drives his behavior is largely not conscious.” – Lundy Bancroft, Why Does He Do That? (2002)

Myths About Domestic Violence Conflict and discord are a normal post of any relationship. Sometimes a person just loses control. Battered women could leave the relationship if they wanted Men and women are equally violent towards each other


Serving DV Survivors: Who is Affected? Anyone can become a victim of domestic violence – though victims are primarily female Abusers are: spouses, partners, adult children, other family members, and caregivers NOTE – Relationship between a trafficking survivor and their trafficker can resemble these relationships. Intimate partners can be of the opposite of same sex.

Serving DV Survivors VAWA and FVPSA Compliance Like HUD requirements, DV programs must comply with federal rules FVPSA – Programs shall not disclose any personally identifying information collected in connection with services requested (included services utilized and denied. Programs must not reveal any personally identifying information without informed, written, reasonably time-limited consent by the person about whom information is sought.

Serving DV Survivors VAWA and FVPSA Compliance VAWA – Programs may not disclose, reveal or release personally identifying information. (Permitted when the victim provides written, informed and reasonably time-limited consent to the release of information.) Personally identifying information includes an individual’s name, address, contact info, SSN, race, birth date, number of children in the family, etc.

Serving DV Survivors Trauma Responses Trauma responses vary widely and can include: Physical complaints: Chronic pain, fatigue, stomach pains, respiratory problems, headaches, muscle cramps of aches, low back pain or cardiovascular problems. Psychosomatic complaints Self-medication through drug or alcohol use Victims may seem disconnected from their lives

Serving Human Trafficking Survivors Unique Service Needs “The intricacies of addressing a multilayered crime of human trafficking make it difficult to rely solely on…established services to meet the needs of victims of human trafficking in the state.” (Wisconsin Human Trafficking Protocol and Resource Manual – WI DOJ) DV and Human Trafficking are similar, but not the same – Power and Control One of the key differences – exploitation for profit

Serving Human Trafficking Survivors Services and Resources Emergency needs met first – safety, food, shelter, health care , etc. Possible Long-term needs – employment training, education, legal assistance, health care, mental health care, transitional and permanent housing, AODA treatment, immigration services, etc. Limited resources and services specifically designed for human trafficking survivors.
