Reproductive coercion is a relatively new concept in the field - simply defined, it is when a partner is trying to get a woman pregnant against her will or control the outcome of a pregnancy through threats, intimidation or by tampering with contraceptive (birth control) methods. Domestic violence programs can play an important role in addressing reproductive coercion through basic screening/assessment, advocacy and safety planning, linking survivors to health services, and providing access to over-the-counter medications such as Emergency Contraception. This webinar will define and explain the core issues of reproductive coercion for multi-disciplinary providers, explore service and partnerships building options, and provide an example of of DV program's experience integrating services.

Meeting the Civil Legal Needs of Survivors: The Center for Solo Practitioners

August 19, 2014

10:00 -11:30 am PT (12:00-1:30 pm CT, 1:00-2:30 pm ET)

Pro bono legal services cannot meet all the legal needs of victims. Funding sources for full-time attorneys are scarce. The Alliance and Thomas Jefferson School of Law have partnered to create a new model for providing legal services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children. This webinar will describe the vision of the rapidly developing “incubator” model of legal services across America, the “accelerator” model developed in San Diego, and the potential for replicable models of the Center for Solo Practitioners in Family Justice Centers and community-based agencies across the country. Lilys McCoy, the Director of the Center for Solo Practitioners will join Casey Gwinn, Gael Strack, and others on the Alliance Team to present the San Diego Model and lay out the steps necessary to develop a similar model in other communities. The Alliance’s pilot project, started in 2012 has had significant results to date and the potential for meeting the complex legal needs of victims is unlimited. Join the webinar and dream big about meeting legal needs of survivors and their children in your community!

This session is approved for .5 California Minimum Continuing Education (CEU) credit and 1 Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credit.
