Title: Addressing Legal Remedies and Safety Concerns for Families Experiencing Domestic Violence Concerns
As a provider, you may encounter the disclosure of domestic violence within a client’s life. Whether it be a spouse, partner, family member, or of child, domestic violence within a person’s life can be emotionally, mentally, and physically harmful, it can also potentially be deadly. While you provide mental health services to help a client heal and move on, many clients may be unaware of available legal remedies, or how to obtain them, to help protect themselves and their families.
Attorney Gwendolyn J. Sterk, Sterk Family Law Group, P.C. will discuss various legal remedies and orders including Orders of Protection, No Contact Orders, Firearms Restraining Orders, and the role of a provider as a mandated reporter.
Between the mental health services you provide, and the available legal remedies, there IS hope for those suffering from domestic violence.
