Federal Agencies Share 'Trauma-Informed' Approaches to Address Domestic Violence
A new federal report highlights “trauma-informed” approaches adopted by more than three-dozen federal agencies to address violence and abuse against women, according to TheCrimeReport.org.
The Federal Partners Committee on Women and Trauma arranges data sharing, no-cost training and policy guidance between agencies ranging from the Department of Defense to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The report details steps that agencies have taken to establish early trauma assessment and treatment of victims.
In the DoD, “violence in the military has been identified as an area for further exploration. The goal for this next year is to identify, summarize, and define common and specific risk factors associated with various types of violence, including self-directed, sexual, family and workplace violence,” the report says.
