Advocating for Military-Connected Survivors: Foundations for Working with Military-Connected Survivors of DVSAS

This training will be highly interactive and will utilize a complex case scenario. To allow for rich, multidisciplinary cross-collaboration, we encourage attendees to activate their cameras and microphones for interactive sessions.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify the unique needs of military-connected survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking and the challenges they face in accessing services and rights.
2. Identify select military and civilian-based services and rights afforded to military-connected survivors.
3. Clarify differences between the military and civilian criminal justice systems.
4. Articulate cross-jurisdictional strategies and concerns.
5. Develop models for building and sustaining trauma-informed military-civilian partnerships, including Military/Civilian Coordinated Community Response (CCR).
6. Identify strategies to advocate for high risk and historically marginalized military-connected survivors.

NCVLI will be leading and participating in two of the training sessions in NOVA’s upcoming 4-day training for advocates. Meg Garvin will be presenting on June 4th: Victims’ Rights 101: Military and Civilian Criminal Justice.
