Working to prevent domestic violence and protect its victims.
For more than 20 years, Pam Paziotopoulos, president of the Center for Domestic Violence Policy, has been advocating for the prevention of domestic violence and the protection of domestic violence victims. As a national organization, the Center for Domestic Violence Policy is dedicated to addressing and minimizing the most pervasive crime in our country, domestic violence.
Our Corporate Training programs provide useful and comprehensive classroom-style training, webinars, and presentations for HR Directors, Managers, and Employees alike. Our education and training programs include tools designed to ensure participants get the most from the program.
Early intervention and education is key to preventing domestic violence. It's well established that individuals who are educated on the signs, characteristics, and patterns of abusive behavior are more likely to recognize these traits in potential partners and terminate these relationships early on without harm.
Threat assessment is an instrumental tool in preventing and minimizing future violence from offenders. We offer advanced training programs for legal professionals, including police, attorneys, and judges in which participants learn to identify lethal risk factors, future risks to the victim and community, and assess and apply that information in a legal setting.
Bringing consistent, cutting-edge, life-saving domestic violence legislation to every state in the country is a primary goal of the CDVP. While many laws protecting victims are already in place, the CDVP is committed to the constant improvement of legislative policy and protection of victims.
MORE THAN 3 WOMEN ARE KILLED EACH DAY DUE TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
*In the U.S. alone 1,365 women died in 2017 as a result of domestic violence.
1-in-4 women and 1-in-7 men over the age of 18 have been victims of some form of domestic violence by a partner. Unfortunately, this crime has likely affected us or someone we care about. If you’d like to help support our efforts here are four ways.
