Event Details

Please join us for our From Numbers to Practice: Evidence-Based Family Violence Response Webinar.

Domestic violence-related fatalities and murder-suicides decimate families and communities, shattering the equilibrium that once held them secure. In response, the Georgia Commission on Family Violence (GCFV) conducted qualitative and quantitative research on domestic violence-related fatalities to prevent, intervene, and respond to family violence. Through in-depth reviews of fatal incidents, the homicide-suicide connection in family violence cases was revealed, with further data analysis revealing a dramatic increase in domestic violence-related murder-suicides in recent years in Georgia, mirroring similar trends nationwide. This workshop will describe how GCFV launched intervention and protocol training for communities and established a network of trained mental health clinicians to provide individual and group therapy for surviving family members. Strategies on how using data allows communities to respond and recover from the tragedy of domestic violence-related fatalities and murder-suicides will also be discussed.
