Hosted by: The Battered Women's Justice Project (BWJP)
The Department of Defense (DoD) has a FAP Office that establishes overarching policy for the prevention of and response to domestic violence and child abuse and neglect. Each military service then implements those policies at the service level. Sometimes it is a bit confusing to figure out how all of this fits together and how it affects the services for victims of domestic violence at the local installation level. This webinar provides an opportunity to hear from FAP experts from DoD and the five services, Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. Whether you work in DoD or in a community-based program, this webinar will enhance your knowledge about the military FAPs, which will enable you to better serve military-related domestic violence victims.
