Technology Safety in Domestic Violence Programs

Added Monday, September 22, 2014 by Action Alliance

Safety is a primary concern for domestic violence shelters.  New technology has created opportunities for safety to be compromised.  However, technology also provides many ways for all of us to communicate and stay in contact with our family, friends, and others in our social network and has become part of our everyday lives.   This document offers domestic violence advocates guidance on  integrating discussions about technology into their safety planning with residents of the domestic violence shelter, as well as with survivors receiving non-residential services.

Technology Safety Planning with Survivors

Added Thursday, April 03, 2014 by Action Alliance

Technology has a major impact on survivors of abuse. It can be used by a survivor to access help, to strategically maintain safety and privacy, and to remain connected to family and friends. It is often used to prove guilt and hold offenders accountable. Yet, technology, in its various forms, is also misused by abusers and perpetrators in crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and trafficking. The National Network to End Domestic Violence has developed Technology Safety Planning with Survivors to address how technology impacts the safety, privacy, accessibility, and civil rights of victims.
