Family Advocacy Programs in the Military Services / 26 June 2013

Presented By: The Battered Women's Justice Project

Date: Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Time: 2:00pm – 4:00pm (Central Time)
Location: Your Desk

The Battered Women's Justice Project (BWJP) is pleased to announce a webinar on the Family Advocacy Program (FAP) in the military services. The Department of Defense (DoD) has a FAP Office that establishes overarching policy for the prevention of and response to domestic violence and child abuse and neglect. Each military service then implements those policies at the service level. Sometimes it is a bit confusing to figure out how all of this fits together and how it affects the services for victims of domestic violence at the local installation level. This webinar provides an opportunity to hear from FAP experts from DoD and the five services, Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy. Whether you work in DoD or in a community-based program, this webinar will enhance your knowledge about the military FAPs, which will enable you to better serve military-related domestic violence victims.

Presenters: Kathy Robertson
, Family Advocacy Program Manager, Department of Defense; Melvina Thornton, Program Analyst, Family Advocacy Program, Department of Defense; Pamela Collins, Clinical Director, Air Force Family Advocacy Program; Martin Inman, Deputy, Army Family Advocacy Program-Installation Management Command; Rene Robichaux, Army Social Work Programs Manager, Behavioral Health Division; John Reibling, United States Coast Guard Family Advocacy Program Manager; Paulette Hubbert, Section Head, Marine Corps Family Advocacy Program; Lolita Allen, Family Advocacy Program Analyst, Navy Family Advocacy Program.

Moderator: Glenna Tinney, Military Advocacy Program Coordinator, BWJP

Description: Do you serve military-related victims of domestic violence? Do you understand the military FAPs and the services provided by each military branch? Do you know how to access FAP services? Do you understand how the DoD and the military services are connected and what this means for domestic violence policies and services?

This webinar will help you understand the infrastructure for the military FAPs, how each branch of the military implements the DoD FAP policies related to domestic violence, and the services provided by each.
